There can be no doubt that it is time to take a stand, yet the first step in any campaign is often the most difficult. Thankfully, there are plenty of resources available to help you start a divestment movement on your campus. In the following we share materials and links we have found to be most useful.

Dozens of US institutions and thousands of faculty and staff have already joined a global movement. Whether we integrate the issue of divestment in our curricula or work with campus organizations to divest all fossil fuel holdings from our institution’s portfolios, every step we take, every resolution we pass, and every commitment we make will bring us closer to attaining our goal: to reinvest in economically and ecologically responsible resources and to protect our communities and planet from the undeniable consequences of global warming.
