On April 9th-11th, students will have the opportunity to vote on a Fossil Fuel Divestment Referendum.
The referendum is a powerful opportunity for students to make their voices heard regarding UC Berkeley’s investment in the fossil fuel industry and in climate change, as well as to showcase student opinion to the UC Regents at their May meeting in Sacramento as we make the case for divestment from fossil fuels and reinvestment in just and sustainable companies.
Please make your voices heard in the fight to halt climate change and forward climate justice by voting for a Fossil Free Cal on April 9th-11th.
**ONLINE VOTING** will be accessible beginning 9 AM on Monday, April 9, 2013: http://elections.asuc.org/
