- The World Bank's pledge to end all upstream investment in the oil and gas sector by 2019 topples a key pillar holding up the social license around the fossil fuel industry.
- Acknowledging the obvious fact that our future cannot be fossil fueled begins the game that will only be truly won when our public policies, our laws, our governments, and our social norms fully incorporate this truth.
- We stand with the students and community of Charlottesville as they stand up to fascism and fight white supremacy. Today and every day, we are committed to fighting for a more just and equitable world for all.
