Putting Our Futures Over Profit
Sign on using this form to receive more details and future communications!
Our collective day of action aims to encourage awareness and engagement with the global movement for fossil fuel divestment within academic and community institutions. We are students at colleges and universities affirming our commitment to the greater mission of divestment and restorative climate justice worldwide. We demand that our institutions divest from fossil fuels as part of a greater commitment to reparations for their contributions to the climate crisis. We support a vision for climate justice based in community care and restorative relationships between our academic institutions and local communities. We will not accept the prioritization of profit over our futures.
What: Campuses around the United States and the world will take action through rallying, tabling, protesting, and/or walking out in solidarity with our message for divestment at our academic institutions. Any kind of disruptive action specific to your campus is welcome under our message. Our movement will be influenced by and tailored around the needs of participating campaigns as part of our collective fight for fossil fuel divestment.
When: On or about Friday, November 12th, 2021
