Divest Muhlenberg from Fossil Fuels & Private Prisons

Divest Muhlenberg from Fossil Fuels & Private Prisons

By October 2016: Announce a plan for the complete divestment from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel or private prison public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years.

Why is this important?

Simply weighing socially just alternatives against our current socially unjust practices is not acceptable; Muhlenberg's Fundamental Institutional Values agree to "make institutional decisions that are mindful of our complex relations with the ecosystem," and we hold the administration accountable for actively upholding this promise. Inaction in response to demands for ethical investment is no longer excusable.
