President Faust Balks at Climate Leadership

On Thursday, October 3rd, Harvard University President Drew Faust published a letter displaying her apathy towards the fossil fuel industry.
Divest Harvard’s official response:

Leadership requires courage and vision–President Faust demonstrated neither. Today, she chose the fossil fuel industry over her students.

We will be publishing an in-depth response shortly.
In the meantime, you can read a cogent reply by Harvard Divinity School student and climate activist Tim DeChristopher here.

Do you have a response to President Faust’s letter? Email a short response to Pennilynn Stahl at pstahl1228 so we can compile them.

Meeting on Monday, October 7th

Come to our meeting at 8:00PM in the Quincy Spindell Room to discuss our response to President Faust’s letter. This is an exciting time to get involved. Join us!
