March 24th to Earth Day 2023
The 350 Wisconsin Art Collective is collaborating once again with a coalition of UW environmental student groups on a series of Earth Day events. The events will be held 4:00–6:00pm every Friday from March 24 through April 21 on the East Campus Mall, with the central activity taking place around the 300 block, just north of Walgreens. Join us for speakers, an art project, free food, and most of all, to support the next generation of climate activists.
On Earth Day, April 22, there will be a rally at Library Mall, followed by a march up State Street. Rumor has it that something quite unusual will also be happening that day at the Dane County Farmers’ Market. Stay tuned for details!
Climate Safe Pensions for Wisconsin
Rally & Petition Delivery!
Tuesday, March 28, 2023
More than 500 members of the Wisconsin Retirement System have signed the Climate Safe Pensions for Wisconsin petition urging the State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB) to DIVEST from fossil fuels and REINVEST in a clean energy future. The petitions will be delivered at the SWIB building during SWIB’s next Board meeting on Tuesday, March 28, and we’re invited to join the gathering and rally:
WHAT: Climate Safe Pensions Rally & Petition Delivery
WHEN: Tuesday, March 28, at noon
WHERE: SWIB, 121 E. Wilson St., Madison
SIGN THE PETITION: bit.ly/CSPWPetition
QUESTIONS? Email team@ClimateSafePensionsWisconsin.org
Earlier in March, Climate Safe Pensions sent a message to SWIB leaders telling them they wanted to meet with them and present the signed petitions. To paraphrase their response: We’re too busy, and state law doesn’t require us to allow public comments.
So, Climate Safe Pensions will show up at SWIB on March 28 with the petitions in hand to remind SWIB of their fiduciary responsibility to assess and act on climate-related financial risks. Let’s join them!
It’s 2023, and we’re looking to have a bigger impact than ever! To stay up to date on our actions, check this page often, subscribe to our monthly Climate Newsletter, and follow us on social media!
