Jan. 31 Forum: Fossil Fuel Divestment

Fossil Fuel Divestment
A special adult Forum sponsored by the Justice  in a Changing Climate Task Force
January 31, 9:30AM, Fellowship Hall

Churches around the country and around the world are doing what they can to decrease fossil fuel use and decrease climate change.  As you know, CUCC is actively involved, our latest action being the installation of 9.2 kW of solar power on our fellowship hall last year.

You may also know that the United Church of Christ and the Episcopal denomination has now decided to entirely divest from fossil fuel companies.  This is a bold step that will impact fossil fuel companies.

An important next question is whether individual churches (CUCC) and people (us) can and should follow this lead.  This is the discussion we hope to initiate with the visit by Peter Krull to the CUCC adult forum at 9:15 on January 31.

Pete is the president and founder of Krull and Co, a company that specializes in socially responsible investment.  He is working with North Carolina Interfaith Power & Light (NCIPL) to open the fossil fuel divestment discussion and show individuals what is possible.

We hope you will be able to come to forum on Jan 31 and participate in this discussion.
