Campaign Teams

Divestment

2016 was the hottest year on record. The Divestment Team focuses on convincing institutions that investments in fossil fuel are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. Banks are our current focus since without their support, dirty pipeline projects can’t get funded.

Contact: Karen Pope, kosbornepope@gmail.com

Community Energy

The Community Team is focused on taking action on and responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.

Contact: Don Ferber, d_ferber@sbcglobal.net

Response

The Response Team responds to requests for immediate action by planning and implementing rallies, public forums, phone banks, etc. The team both initiates its own actions and supports actions initiated by the other campaigns.

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Team is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.
