This is a site for posting news and information about the divestment movement within the Unitarian Universalist Association. The full name of our group is “Unitarian Universalists for Fossil Fuel Divestment and Sustainable Reinvestment” or “UU Divest” for short.
At the 2014 UUA General Assembly, we accomplished our primary goal of getting a resolution passed calling for the UUA to divest its Common Endowment Fund. We now continue with other aspects of fossil fuel divestment such as encouraging member congregations to divest their separately held endowment funds and working for divestment by other organizations such as colleges, foundations, states, and municipalities. If you would like to join in on the discussion, email Wes Ernsberger or Nick Laiacona with the name of your congregation and your role within the congregation. They will email you an invitation to join our uudivestment Yahoo group.
