New REC Student Organizers!

Hey everybody, this is Greg Caplan from University of Michigan and Mary Schellentrager from American University, two of the new campus organizers at REC!  We've spent this past week  in NYC training with REC, meeting awesome organizers and learning how to implement responsible investment practices at our universities.  Six activists came together from campuses across the country and met with REC staff members Cheyenna, Lauren, Angela, Jason, and Morgan as well as REC allies organizing around LittleSis and the solidarity economy.  The other students were Max Cole from Seattle University, Olivia Grugan from Middlebury College, Josh Hale from Tufts University, and Angie Bozell from University of Michigan.  After the intensive week, we are pumped to start or continue the responsible investment campaigns at our campuses!
