UChicago Divestment Report Drafting

What are these meet-ups you ask? 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.
