4/22: Happy Earth Day! 6 Columbia students have finished an 8-day sit-in in Low Library, to demand fossil fuel divestment. They are so grateful for the outpouring of support from the campus community.
Thank you to the 100+ people who joined our Sleep-Out on Low Steps on Thursday night to show solidarity with those still inside!
Columbia Divest for Climate Justice (CDCJ) is a coalition of Columbia University students, faculty, and community members dedicated to divesting our $9.2B endowment from the fossil fuel industry as part of the broader movement for climate justice. We were founded in 2012, and we will continue to mobilize student power on campus until the Board of Trustees commits to divestment.
