Divest Indianapolis From Fossil Fuels
Divest Indianapolis' investment holdings from fossil fuel companies within 2 years.
Why is this important?
As another step in working toward Mayor Ballard's goal of making Indianapolis one of the most sustainable cities, the Mayor should work with city planners and the city council to divest from fossil fuel investments.
The health risks from burning oil are significant. According to the Center for Disease Control, an estimated 134,485 children in Indiana had asthma. Child lifetime asthma prevalence was 12.9%
From an economic point of view fossil fuels are a bad investment because fossil fuel sources are running out and the costs of extracting and fracking are increasing, reducing profits.
How it will be delivered
Plan to alert the press to the delivery of the signatures to the Mayor's office.
