There is an important climate bill moving through the Oregon legislature right now that needs our support. 

Oregon has a chance to pass the Clean Oregon Assets Legislation (COAL) Act this short legislative session, a bill drafted in coordination with the State Treasurer that would move nearly $1 billion in state pension investments out of dirty coal, the most polluting fossil fuel. 

Dayenu is joining with more than 100 organizations in support of the COAL Act. The bill has passed the State House, and is now in the Senate. We need your help to get it over the finish line.

Jewish text teaches we are to embody our values “with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might.” Some scholars understand this to  include aligning our financial assets with our Jewish values, including enabling people to thrive from generation to generation. Ending public investments in fossil fuels is what science and justice demand. Screening out coal from Oregon’s public pension funds will align our investments with our state’s climate policy, and Oregonians’ commitment to a just, livable future for generations to come. It also makes financial sense: when California’s pension CalPERS screened out coal, it saw investment returns increase by nearly $600 million. 

We are racing to get this bill passed before the end of the short legislative session, so now is a vital time to lend your voice! Email your state senator and tell them to vote YES on the Oregon COAL Act (HB 4083).
