Have you heard of the G.R.O.W. (Gather Rise Organize Win) Divestment meet-ups?
They are convergences of student organizers and off-campus environmental justice groups, meant to build strong coalitions that will lay the groundwork for future collaboration. Students will return to campus having built the infrastructure for student-driven national and regional networks for communications and coordination. As both the divestment movement and the movement for climate justice seek escalation on a large scale, G.R.O.W. meet-ups will forge the vital connections needed to create a broad-based movement to confront the fossil fuel industry.
G.R.O.W. Divestment meet-ups are happening throughout the summer, in cities across the nation. And we’re bringing one to Chicago!
Here are the specifics:
Date: Saturday, August 17th 2013
Place: Roosevelt University, 430 S. Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605
Time: TBA (The event is free of charge)
