CDCJ Sends First-Ever Proposal To ASCRI

Do the right thing, Board of Trustees.

Do the right thing, Board of Trustees.

The Columbia Divest for Climate Justice (CDCJ) met last evening with the Board of Trustees to discuss a proposal CDCJ has written “for divestment from the top 200 publicly-traded fossil fuel companies,” according to an email CDCJ wrote Bwog last night. CDCJ sent the proposal to Columbia’s Advisory Committee on Socially Responsible Investing (ACSRI).

The group pointed out that this is the first time they have submitted a proposal to ACSRI. In spring 2014, according to CDCJ’s email, ACSRI voted on and rejected a divestment Powerpoint presentation with little discussion. With this recent progress under their belt, we expect to see more of CDCJ this semester and onward.
