Across the country students are coming together to oppose their universities’ connections to fossil fuel companies, corporations tied to incarceration, and the WAR INDUSTRY.
We’ll be talking to experts and activists to learn about making contact to these groups and working in solidarity.

Their first focus has been on divestment of war company holdings of the University of Texas/Texas A&M Investment Management Company (UTIMCO), the largest public endowment fund in the U.S. They have been mobilizing student governance bodies at the University of Texas, Austin (including the Graduate Student Assembly, Student Government, and the Senate of College Councils) to develop support for University of Texas system divestment from weapons manufacturers.
