Now that the MN350 Divestment Team is launching a Divest Minneapolis
Campaign (in addition to its earlier focus on colleges and universities),
I'll be joining it at the June 16 meeting. In 1985-86 I was an active
member of the MN Anti-Apartheid Coalition working on divestment of South
African holdings at the city and state levels, and this is an exciting
opportunity to advance climate justice using a proven and effective
organizing tool.

If as expected the General Assembly passes the Fossil Fuel Divestment
Business Resolution, I also hope to organize around divestment at FUS and
through the MUUSJA environmental working group. Perhaps we can discuss the
issue at the next MUUSJA meeting in July.
