National Divestment Movement Updates

This is a few days old…and I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. But better late than never!

There have been some exciting updates with college divestment campaigns around the country.

  • Brown University’s Advisory Committee on Corporate Responsibility in Investment Policies voted to recommend divestment from the 15 largest coal companies.
  • Student governments at Green Mountain College, UC Santa Cruz, UC David, Michigan State University, Macalester College, American University, University of Massachusetts, University of South Florida–St. Petersburg, University of Tennessee, and University of Southern Maine voted in favor of divestment
  • Students at the University of Michigan voted for divestment.
  • The faculty Senate at Northwestern University endorsed divestment.

What an incredible movement! More updates here: http://www.wearepowershift.org/blogs/photo-round-national-victories-build-power-divestnow
