"At Liberty Hill, environmental justice is a core value and one of our top priorities. Over the years we have powered landmark environmental campaigns, including today’s fight to end oil drilling near homes and schools in Los Angeles—the nation’s largest urban oil field. In accordance with our dedication to fighting climate change and our belief in a greener future, Liberty Hill is proud to announce that we have taken the Fossil Fuel Free pledge. As part of the pledge, Liberty Hill commits to freeze immediately any new investments in fossil fuels, and within five years to divest from any funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds. Although only a small portion of Liberty Hill’s investment portfolio contains exposure to energy companies, we believe that divestment is the best way for us to fully drive our environmental justice mission forward, and fight for a clean and healthy Los Angeles for all."  – Michele Prichard; Director, Common Agenda
