We are excited about being a part of PC(USA)’s opportunity to speak with a loud and prophetic voice on behalf of creation. We believe that divestment is an essential tool, among many, that institutional and personal investors can use to influence the course of climate change. We pray that Presbyterians will join the faithful chorus of the UCC, Unitarians, Episcopalians, the World Council of Churches, and 5,000 institutions to date in divestment from fossil fuels.
