Climate Groups, Teachers, Students Urge NYSUT To Divest Pensions From Fossil Fuels

Climate groups, teachers, students, faith leaders, and labor rallied on Saturday April 28 outside the NYS United Teachers Annual Representative Assembly in Albany, calling on the union leadership to follow through on the numerous resolutions passed by teachers at the local, state and national level to divest the teachers’ pension funds from fossil fuels. We hear from retired arts teacher Mary Finneran; Schenectady High School Student Andy Ramnauth ; retired school staffperson and labor representative Candace Liden; and Alycia Bacon of Mothers out front.
