Together, we are building an unstoppable movement to demand fossil fuel divestment from our colleges and universities and the socially responsible reinvestment of our endowments. Student divestment organizers across the U.S. created this site to serve as a location for campaigns to learn more about the upcoming mass escalation. We hope this is a space to grow student power as we continue the fight for climate justice at our institutions of higher education.
We are currently planning for Fossil Fuel Divestment Day (shorthand: F2D2) on February 13th, 2020. On this day, campus divestment campaigns across the country (along with allies in state pension divestment campaigns and international groups) will take unified action. Coordination at this scale is unprecedented in our movement.
The drop down menu contains information about our movement, toolkits and resources, a place to sign on, and more. We recommend reading our principles and narrative under the Our Movement tab first. These documents contain the values that guide our movement and our reasons for escalating. You can look at our Timeline page to see the planned trajectory of national escalation, from now until the fall of 2020. If you’d like to join us for F2D2, click the Sign On tab and fill out either your or your campaign’s information to receive more support from Divest Ed and join the list of participating universities. Also, look under the the Resources tab for tactic toolkits, which contain guides to planning actions for campaigns of all sizes and capacities, as well as resources on everything from creating land acknowledgements to learning about popular education.
Thank you for joining us! We look forward to organizing with you.
