Alumni Support for Divestment & Responsible Investing

From Wednesday, April 1st to Friday, April 3rd, alumni and students are coming together for the National Alumni Escalation to send a collective message to universities: Stand on the side of climate justice and a sustainable future! Divest now! In collaboration with REC, the Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network,, and the escalating schools, we are calling on all alumni to participate by signing on to this petition. You can also join the Fossil Free Facebook event and take part in our other actions. 

Some of the escalating schools in the National Alumni Escalation and the broader spring fossil fuel divestment escalation are:

Swarthmore College
