Strength Comes in Numbers.
Change does not come easy. For too long we have subsidized almost every aspect of our life with fossil fuels without realizing the true consequences of our behavior. Thus we are paying an increasingly higher price for our dependence on coal, oil and natural gas. This website is just one of many platforms we will use in the coming months to educate college and university adminstrators that fiduciary and environmental responsibilities go hand in hand, and that the time to divest is now. No more excuses. Let's work together to divest from fossil fuels and to make the development and utilization of renewable sources of energy the lunar landing of the 21st century.
Need help with your fossil fuel divestment campaign? Send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell us your issue and we will connect you with a faculty or staff person with expertise in that area.
