Tell Whitman's Board of Trustees to Divest from Fossil Fuels

This petition had 182 supporters

In the wake of massive natural disasters, and with a federal administration which has practically ignored the growing threat of climate change, it is more important than ever that institutions like Whitman speak up and show leadership by making serious changes. One of the best ways to do this is through fossil fuel divestment. By continuing to invest millions of dollars in this harmful and destructive industry, Whitman is showing negligence and disregard for the future of the planet, and encouraging divestment would be an important step forward in demonstrating environmental stewardship. As an alumnus, you hold great influence over the Board of Trustees and the endowment. Having your voices in support of fossil fuel divestment would be monumental, and perhaps even crucial in inspiring real change.
