Divest Fossil Fuels
It's wrong to wreck the planet and it's even worse to profit from that wreckage. The fossil fuel divestment movement is calling on mission-driven institutions to divest from the dirty, dangerous fossil fuel companies that have caused climate catastrophe in their ruthless pursuit of profit. We hold our universities to a higher standard and are demanding they divest from this human rights violating rogue industry.
The fossil fuel divestment movement has spread like wildfire to over 300 campuses and even cities, faith-based institutions, foundations, and pension funds. Our goal is to diminish the influence and power of the fossil fuel industry in the market, our political system, and in the social conscience overall. It's time for our universities to invest in accordance to their mission and in a safe, clean future for current students and future generations. Five schools have already divested - is yours next?
