Hearing on Russian Divestment

russia-gay-pride.jpgYesterday, I held a hearing to encourage the San Francisco Retirement System to explore divesting from any Russian holdings, in light of the extreme anti-LGBT laws that have put in place there. The amount of money SFERS has invested in Russia is small (about .16%), so hopefully there is a way to divest while still maintaining fidiciuary responsibility to current and future retirees. San Francisco should not be associated with a government that is using laws to criminalize LGBT people.
