Divestment Now: The Best Solution for Environmental Justice

Power Up! Divest Fossil Fuels: Student Convergence 2013 took place this past weekend at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA. Students from Harvard, Middlebury, Earlham, Yale, Brown, Bryn Mawr, Cornell, Sewanee, and Swartmore worked for months to raise funds, organize the event, invite speakers from a wide-array of backgrounds, and much more to make this event possible. In total, almost 200 students from 77 different schools were represented at this Convergence. They came from different backgrounds with various entry points into climate activism, and proved this weekend that in building a powerful national movement, we can use our differences to grow in so many ways.
