Sign the petition to divest the teachers' pension fund
from coal, oil and gas
The New York State Teachers' Retirement System (NYSTRS)* has an estimated $4.5 billion** invested in climate destroying fossil fuels with over $500,000,000 invested in Exxon Mobil alone. We call on NYSTRS to stop funding climate destruction and divest its funds from all fossil fuels. Continued investments in coal, oil and gas put our climate and the financial stability of our retirement fund at risk.
