Support student-led campaign to have SITLA divest from Fossil Fuels
This petition had 448 supporters
Utah Trust Lands have long been used for the development and fossil fuel extraction by the School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA), with the reasoning that "they are helping the students". In 2013, data shows that only about 2.3% of their revenue is received by Utah public schools, and only contributes 1% of the total education budget for Utah. SITLA's decisions continually contribute to Climate Change, which ruins students rights to clean air, water, and stable climate. As Utah students and the inheritors of this beautiful state, we resolve that SITLA should transition from using our trust lands for extracting industries to more renewable industries. We feel that this transition could sustain the financial support of our schools while avoiding the jeopardization of our air, land, water and climate.
