REInvestment is having an interest and celebration meeting Tuesday (4/11) at 5pm in CST 106. At the Foundation's May meeting, the Socially Responsible Investment Advisory Committee will reccomend that "companies engaged in significant coal extraction via mountaintop removal and oil extraction from oil sands or tar sands be excluded from direct ownership." This is the first time in SRIAC's history that it has recommended divestment so we are super excited, even though it took 5+ years.
REInvestment is planning on pursuing divestment from companies involved in fracking, and eventually on positively investing in renewable energy and in historically marginalized and frontline communities. We are looking for new members so please come if you are interested in getting involved with this exciting movement! Also, there will be food!

Interfaith house is screening Renewal, a documentary about religious-environmental activism.
Come for a study break before finals week with yummy food, tea, and conversation.
"From within their Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim traditions, Americans are becoming caretakers of the Earth. With great courage, these women, men and children are re-examining what it means to be human and how we live on this planet. Their stories of combating global warming and the devastation of mountaintop removal, of promoting food security, environmental justice, recycling, land preservation, and of teaching love and respect for life on Earth are the heart of RENEWAL."

REInvestment will be screening Naomi Klein's "This Changes Everything" on Monday night at 7pm in LBC 105.
"This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change... The film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better."

Chris Gang, an organizer with Radical Action for Mountains' and People's Survival (RAMPS), an organization fighting for the survival of the land and people of Appalachia, the right to a healthy and sustainable future, and the right to a livelihood that nurtures that future, will be speaking in Rose City at 7pm on Thursday (10/27). RAMPS sees destruction of the land as dependent on economic and political oppression of those who live on it.
Chris Gang will speak about the hi...story of colonization in Appalachia that has produced the environmental injustices and poverty in the region today, and his work to subvert the power structures that rob Appalachians of their health, clean water, and self-determination.
If you're interested in finding out more about RAMPS, this is their website: http://rampscampaign.org


Here's a description from Chris, our speaker!
"For more than 2 years, a motley group of residents of Charleston, WV, have been fighting to shut down the KD#2 mountaintop removal coal mine, located right next to a beloved state forest. And we're winning! Through paperwrenching, litigation, public engagement and education, political and personal pressure, creative "sousveillance", and being willing to put our bodies on the line, we've gotten the mine stopped since Feb. 2015.

This workshop will tell the story of this campaign thus far, using it as an example to discuss selecting strategic campaigns against extractive industry, building frontline coalitions, doing solidarity organizing, working within AND against the regulatory system, and escalating tactics to direct action. It'll present a number of lessons from doing radical political work in a resource colony—an environment where lines are a little more clearly drawn than elsewhere—and will discuss how to put these skills and solutions to work in environmental and social justice organizing in your own context."

Incredible news! Berlin has just voted to divest its €750 million pension fund from coal, oil and gas. This makes it the 5th European city to capital to pull its money from fossil fuels.

Congratulations Fossil Free Berlin Fossil Free Deutschland and everyone who worked on this campaign!
