G.R.O.W. Divestment at the MI CATS Action Camp!

Every single orange flag in this photo represents $1 million the University of Michigan has invested in fossil fuels.  Now imagine what it would look like if we added flags representing every million dollars invested in fossil fuels from every college and university endowment in the state of Michigan.  Would there be double the one thousand flags? (U of M has ~$1 billion invested in fossil fuels). Triple?

Now imagine what it would look like for divestment organizers across the state to come together to G.R.O.W.—Gather. Rise. Organize. Win. We’re excited to announce that G.R.O.W. Michigan, part of a national campaign to build the divestment movement and collaborate with students regionally working on divestment, will be taking place at the Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands Action Camp from July 19-22.

Not only will you get to join in on the badassery of fighting tar sands in Michigan, but you’ll get the opportunity to network with and join forces with other students fighting the same divestment fight as you!

If you are interested in attending, please sign up here and MI CATS will get in touch soon!

And of course if you can’t attend, here’s the donation link for you to use and/or share widely!

If you have any questions regarding the GROW divestment chunk of the weekend, don’t hesitate to contact me (Marion Berger)! You can email me at marion.berger@350.org.
