Divest Oregon Update

This is a huge moment in Oregon and greatly contributes to the national divestment movement. It’s the 3rd divestment bill to pass in a US legislature. And it’s all because of all of YOU!
Read the media coverage from Alex Baumhardt at Oregon Capital Chronicle.
Thanks also to our chief sponsors
Representative Khanh Pham and Senator Jeff Golden

Help shape Oregon’s financial future!

The Oregon State Treasurer plays a critical role in state investments, including the $94 billion pension fund — the 12th largest in the country.
In February, State Treasurer Tobias Read revealed his signature net-zero plan to decarbonize the state’s portfolio by 2050; in March, the Oregon legislature passed the COAL Act. How the Treasury’s net-zero plan and the COAL Act are implemented will depend on the next Treasurer’s leadership.
This forum will focus on Building a Treasury for Tomorrow with questions around climate-safe investing and rising private equity concerns, as well as key issues about transparency, management style, and governance.
Moderated by the Oregon Capital Chronicle’s Alex Baumhardt, the forum is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6pm. A reception and Divest Oregon coalition celebration will follow and livestreaming will be available for those outside the Portland area. All who have filed as candidates for Oregon State Treasurer have been invited to participate.
Attendees are invited to submit questions as part of their RSVP.
