Divest Hope, Maine From Fossil Fuels

Divest Hope, Maine From Fossil Fuels

Divest Hope's holdings from fossil fuels within 3 years.

Why is this important?

A few years ago, global warming seemed like a distant threat, something that would maybe affect our great grand-children, but not us. In 2012, that all changed. Burning carbon-based fuels has changed, and is continuing to change our atmosphere in dramatic ways like nothing we’ve ever seen before. This is happening at a far more accelerated rate, causing global warming and climate instability. We will be leaving our children with a tremendous burden as they try to adapt to an ever-hotter world with extreme weather and an unpredictable future.

How it will be delivered

A group of us will deliver the signatures, document the event and post the images on social media and send it to the local press for release.

Hope, Maine, USA
