Divest Harvard is continuing to organize and build momentum this fall! With ~70,000 people joining our call for Harvard to divest, we are getting ready for some big things this semester.
For example! We are planning a fast from October 20-24th. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members from around the world will participate as we fast for fossil fuel divestment and highlight the impacts of fossil fuel companies.
We ask the Harvard community and supporters from around the world to fast with us for up to 3 days throughout the week. We will have a core group that will fast for 3 days (72 hours representing the 72% of Harvard students who support fossil fuel divestment), and many will fast for 1 or 2. We do not encourage or endorse fasting for longer for 5 days—health is our first priority.
You can join from anywhere in the world or come hang out with us on campus. Please fill out this form if you are interested in fasting with us, even for just one day!
