Fossil Fuel Divestment: Hope in the Face of Climate Change
A Diocesan Workshop on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at St. Paul’s, Seattle

Representatives from seven congregations attended this workshop on fossil fuel divestment to prepare for the poll that the Board of Directors intends to conduct this September. This poll will solicit advice regarding fossil fuel divestment from the Vestries and Bishop’s Committees of the congregations that are invested in the Diocesan Investment Fund. Prior to September all members of the diocese who have reviewed the online education materials or attended a workshop on fossil fuel divestment are welcome to submit a comment to the Board of Directors through this online response form.

To request a fossil fuel divestment workshop led by BCE members who can travel to your congregation, send your request to bce@ecww.org.
