Divest the City of Evanston government from fossil fuels

Divest City of Evanston holdings from fossil fuels within 5 years.

Why is this important?

Climate change is already hurting people, plants and animals, particularly those already most vulnerable and least likely to have contributed to greenhouse gases. The purpose of this petition is to act on our values and do it stronger by doing it collectively. We can make a concrete change and send a message as Evanstonians through changing our City investments. Let's take action now to ensure a wonderful, livable world for people and all species for generations to come.

  • To end fossil fuel use.
  • Fossil fuels are a major contributor to climate change, and thus, sea level rise. Their attainment also fouls our inland and coastal waters and harms the health of many terrestrial and oceanic species.Evanston should not invest in such harmful industries.
