The above list includes all known UU congregations in the United States that have explicitly chosen to divest.  In addition, many other UU congregations are on a path to becoming partially or fully divested because they have some or all of their endowment funds invested via the UUA’s Common Endowment Fund, which is now in the process of divesting.

For a worldwide list of divesting organizations, including UU congregations in other countries, see gofossilfree.org/commitments.
