Divestment:

At the same time, on campuses all across the country, students are calling for their colleges and universities to divest from the industry thatís endangering our future. Dozens of campuses already have campaigns underway, and two - Unity College and Hampshire College - have already convinced their schools to divest.

This kind of principled stand by students played a key role in taking down the Apartheid regime in South Africa, and with your help students will once again be a crucial part of ending a great injustice. Weíve launched a special site for students to start divestment campaigns, where you can launch petitions to University presidents, download campaign toolkits, and connect with other students.

Remember, colleges and universities also listen to alumni on issues like this. If students have begun something, alumni and parents can also weigh in and influence decisions.
