Pack the Room at the Fossil Fuel Divestment Public Hearing and Rally

  • to
  • Montgomery County Council Hearing Room

    100 Maryland Ave, Rockville, MD (map)

  • Did you know that the fossil fuel industry has five times as much known reserves of fossil fuels as scientists have determined would be safe to burn without bringing on dangerous climate change? Even though the industry knows this, their “business plan” is still to burn all those reserves - and explore for still more. This is dangerous and immoral. 

    Montgomery County’s pension fund has over $70 million in investments in many large fossil fuel companies – investments that are largely paid for by your tax dollars. We don't need these investments for our pension fund's financial health, and we definitely don't want to be profiting from the greed and short-sightedness of these companies.

    Help us free our pension fund investments from the fossil fuel industry and free our politicians to do the right thing. 

    Come help us pack the room with supporters at the first public hearing for Bill 44-16. There will be a rally beforehand in the County Council Bldg Cafeteria. The Rally will have speakers and provide placards and tshirts to those who will attend the hearing immediately after the rally.

    We are getting significant resistance from some County Council members. Passing this bill will take a major show of support from their constituents. Please come!
