No Divestment

Word is that the Board of Trustees voted not to divest from weapons contractors (for which SEWI has been advocating).

They are, however, setting up some kind of socially responsible investing committee.
Anyone with more information about the decision is encouraged to spill.

Rally for Divestment of Weapons Contractors

Unless you have been living in a bubble that isn’t the Wesleyan one, you’ve heard about the fight for Wesleyan’s divestment from weapons contractors like Raytheon and General Dynamics. The Board of Trustees has a meeting in May at which they could choose to divest. Come join other community members in demanding divestment on Thursday, May 8th.

Check out the facebook event for more background info and a schedule, or see SEWI’s website to read their divestment proposal, or sign their online petition if you haven’t already.
