It's been more than a year since I began working quietly behind the scenes with the Oregon Treasury Department to address the Oregon state pension's investments in #MigrantAbuseCos like CoreCivic & GEO Group. @Edu4MigrJustice @BadassTeachersA @OregonBATs @Indivisible_OR
In that time, they've:
-responded to a members' public records request with a statement that staff admitted was "demonstrably false"
-insisted they have policies on responsible investing which they haven't provided despite multiple requests (and that can't be found online)
In that time they've (con't):
-argued their passive investing strategy prohibits them from divesting - thread on why that's bs:
-tried 2 justify the pt above by claiming there's no way CalSTRS removed CoreCivic & GEO Group from their index (hint: THEY DID)

Cali public employees! Ur voices r making a difference!!

Thanks 2 the @Edu4MigrJustice campaign & passionate CalPERS members, we’re starting 2 see some movement 2 end the largest US pension’s complicity in the migrant abuse crisis!

KEEP UP THE PRESSURE! #E4MJ #StandUp4Migrants
Responding 2 public comments from @Edu4MigrJustice & dozens of CalPERS members, CalPERS board member, Rob Feckner, stated that the Board takes concerns abt CalPERS’ investments in #MigrantAbuseCos as srsly as their stakeholders & that the Board is addressing their concerns. #E4MJ
Feckner alludes 2 internal movement & says stakeholders “will see action @ some pt n time”

But that’s not good enough; the atrocities r happening NOW & conditions r growing more dire by the day

@Edu4MigrJustice & CalPERS members r demanding immediate action b/c #NeverAgainIsNow
