On friday (Febuary 8th) we are holding a huge rally starting at 1:30pm in the Davis Center atrium to show the board of trustees that UVM students wont rest until we divest! We need to get our university untangled from fossil fuels if we are going to claim to be a green university, so come show your support next Friday. The BOT wont meet again until next year so this is our big chance to show them that UVM students, faculty, and staff are on board with divestment!

The following morning SCC will be able to make a public comment. If anyone can come out and show support at this time that would aslo be greatly appreciated. We know waking up at 8:30 on a Saturday is a challenge for most college students, but it will just make it all that much more impressive if we get a good turn out.

In Summary:
Rally and speak out: 1:30pm on Friday the 8th, Davis Center atrium
Public Comment: 8:30am on Saturday the 9th, Silver Maple Ballroom of the Davis Center

Tell us you're coming on facebook!

(Students prepare our props for the rally. This is a paper mache rock that will symbolize Blackrock All Cap Energy Fund, which is the fund UVM is invested in that has the highest percentage of fossil fuel)

Pretty exciting stuff folks!! See you Friday.
