Divest your Congregation from Fossil Fuels

Invest your congregation’s money in sustaining community rather than supporting Big Oil

If your congregation has investments, clean your portfolio by removing investments in dirty fuel producers. Divest any fossil fuel assets you own and invest in clean, local energy and community sustainability.  Possible ways include: 

  • Advocate for Renewable Portfolio Standards for electric providers in your community or state (learn more here), locally sourced renewable energy alternatives, and access to local, clean energy options for everyone in your community.

    The First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee sustains a deep commitment to Earth Justice as an active Green Sanctuary congregation. For the past five years FUSM has been reducing its environmental footprint with building renovations, installing solar panels, product and energy use, composting etc. . From 2012-2013 our member Terry Wiggins, lead the Milwaukee congregation to divest from fossil fuels. She then took her commitment to the UUA and General Assembly and inspired our denomination conversation on divesting. This year we are realigning First Unitarian Society’s divestment policy with the UUA’s, and have invested our restricted funds with the UUA in support of their choice to divest.

    Our Climate Justice month commitment is to deepen our climate justice work by affirming the interrelated nature of all anti-oppression work with climate justice. Our commitment is to shift our intention and attention to integrate all of our justice work, economic, racial and interfaith in our climate justice discussions, to grow our intercultural competency, deep our relationships with The Coalitions For Justice, their allies and our neighbors to address the racial injustices plaguing the most segregated city in the USA.
