Divestment Complaint Press Round-up

CDP’s effort to divest universities from fossil fuels continues to garner attention. On the heels of our legal complaints against Boston College, Harvard, and the fund managing the University of Wisconsin-Madison endowment, The Guardian has an in-depth opinion piece analyzing the merits of our strategy, with quotes from CDP staff attorney Alex Marquardt (based on a co-authored op-ed in The Nation).

The Wisconsin State Journal also has an excellent article describing the motivations and goals of this new effort, with insight from CDP staff attorney Ted Hamilton.

And in case you missed it, there’s plenty more coverage in The New Yorker, Teen Vogue, Common Dreams, The Harvard Crimson, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Daily Herald.
