Divestment Coalition to Encourage ELCA eventually removing Fossil Fuels from investment portfolios.

At the upcoming Churchwide Assembly in New Orleans (August 8-13) there are several memorials suggesting the church divest from fossil fuels and/or invest in renewable energy. Over the past few months a group of people have been promoting this effort to ensure that this conversation is properly discussed by voting members. Read their position paper (also attached below) and follow our efforts on our Facebook page over the next few days. Please share this information with the voting members from your synod and tell them to look out for the people with the "Nein!" buttons next week.
