There can be no doubt that it is time to take a stand, yet the first step in any campaign is often the most diffcult to take. Thankfully there are plenty of resources available to help you start a movement on your campus. In the following we share materials we have found to be most useful.
Dozens of US institutions and hundreds of faculty and staff have already joined what has become a global movement. Whether we integrate the issue of divestment in our curriculum or work with campus organizations to divest all fossil fuel holdings from our institution's portfolios, every step we take, every resolution we pass, and every committment we make will bring us closer to attaining our goal: to reinvest in economically and ecologically responsible resources, and to protect our communities and planet from the undeniable consequences of global warming.
Divestment from fossil fuels is only one step in advancing environmentally and socially responsible investments.
Thus we are supporting a Friends of the Earth campaign urging TIAA-CREF to go deforestation and land grab free.
