Divest University of Washington says
Are you ready to make divestment movement history and pressure UW to become the largest university ever to divest?
Then join us for the big rally and coal divestment vote this Thursday!

The Rally starts at 11am with the vote set to take place at 11:45 in Gerberding Hall 142. If you can't come in time for the rally please come for the vote at 11:45am anyway as the more bodies we have in the room the better.

Rally speakers include:
- Former Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn: the first mayor to commit a city to fossil fuel divestment.
- KC Golden: Senior Policy Adviser at Climate Solutions and climate advocate extraordinaire
- Jess Spear: 15 Now director & former climate scientist and Socialist Alternative candidate for state house calling for a fossil fuel free Washington.
-And last but not least, some home-grown Divest UW history makers: Morgane Arriola, Noam Gaster, Angela Feng & Sarra Tekola bringing the heat!
It's going to be epic, so come be part of history!

Now is a crucial time to let the Board of Regents know that there is support for this proposal, so what better way to let them know than to contact them. Call them on 206-543-1633 or email them at regents@uw.edu. Maybe send the regents a photo pledge not to invest in UW unless they divest, like Seattle City Councilmember O’Brien did. Or why not share a photo in support of divestment on the UW Facebook wall or tweet it at them?
