Last month we appeared before the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) Investment Board to offer our support for California State Treasurer Mr. Chiang’s proposal to divest from companies that deal in weapons that are illegal to own or sell in California.
Watch staffer, Elizabeth Leslie's testimony.
What can you do to support our divestment efforts?
- Check your personal investments, including your 401(k), to see if you are investing in the manufacturers or sellers of banned military-style assault weapons.
