An exciting update from Divest Harvard! We had a referendum question on our student government ballot that asked Harvard undergraduates whether they supported divesting from fossil fuel companies and reinvesting in socially responsible funds.
72% of voting students support fossil fuel divestment.
This is an incredible milestone for Divest Harvard! We launched this campaign a little over two months ago, and it has become one of the major issues on campus. We were the first group is 6 years to spearhead a referendum question, and it has been inspiring to see how much this movement resonates with students.
