What is the DivestNJ Campaign?
The DivestNJ Campaign has been around for nearly two years. It is centered around the idea of the New Jersey State Investment Council (SIC) divesting our Pension System of fossil fuel investments. The SIC is the group of people who are in charge of making determinations about where the billions of dollars that are in our Pension system are invested. This campaign affects all of the Pension systems that are controlled by the state – including the Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund (TPAF) and the Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) as well as five other public employees’ pension plans in New Jersey.
