Monday, January 23, 1:55 PM George Sherman Union775 Commonwealth AvenueBoston, MA 02215
On January 23 within 100 hours of inauguration, students are holding nationwide walkouts, rallies, and meetings to show that we resist and reject Trump's climate denial, and to call on our universities to stand with us by divesting from the fossil fuel industry and reinvesting in solutions to the climate crisis. Join this national day of action!
DivestBU will be taking part, inviting all members of our community to join us in a walkout of our classrooms and work at 1:55 pm to stand against climate change denial and for action from our university on fossil fuel divestment. The walkout will lead to a short rally outside of the George Sherman Union (GSU) at 2 pm and a community divestment forum in the GSU at 2:15 pm. At the forum, we will hold a discussion on how the Trump administration is changing how we address climate change. The conversations will help shape our campaign to demand a re-vote by the Board of Trustees on fossil fuel divestment.
