Fossil Free California works to end financial support for climate-damaging fossil fuels and promote the transition to a socially just and environmentally sustainable society. With environmental and climate justice allies, we ask CA state pension funds to divest from fossil fuels. FFCA supports individuals and cities who want to exclude fossil fuels from banking and investments, and we advocate for legislation and executive action that fosters climate stabilization and investment in a just, zero-carbon economy.

Divestment sends an important market signal and decreases the market capitalization of major funders of fossil fuels. FFCA is a leader in shifting the investment strategies of institutional funds. - Pete
