City of Ithaca Divests!

On Earth Day, April 22, 2013, the city of Ithaca, NY became the FIRST east coast city and the second in the world to divest from fossil fuels. In response to youth demands, following the Youth Power Summit, the city has agreed to divest from the fossil fuel industry (which is not hard- they currently have no investments in the industry!) and not invest any of its holdings into the further destruction of our planet. See the full press release here.

If our entire city can do it, why can’t we, Ithaca College??

Organizers of the 2013 Youth Power Summit demanded that the city of Ithaca Divest last Sunday, April 21.
