Hamilton College: Fight the Climate Crisis

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We encourage Hamilton College, including students, faculty, staff, administrators, and trustees to take action to fight the climate crisis. 

On September 20, 2019, Hamilton College students are striking to stand in solidarity and allyship with the global movement to declare that the climate crisis is the single most urgent, universal threat we have ever faced. The solutions to the climate crisis must not only bring us to carbon neutrality quickly, but also do so in an equitable manner that respects the dignity of frontline communities, which include people of color, womxn, LGBTQ+, indingenous peoples, and those living in the most climate disaster prone areas. 

In the State of New York, we call upon all elected and public officials to ensure that the newly passed Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act be implemented to the fullest extent possible, and that members of marginalized communities are given the strongest voices in said implementation.

We thank the Board of Trustees for divesting our endowment. We call upon The Board to invest in renewable energy and ask that the College move its carbon-neutral goal from 2050 to 2030.
