I am so happy that advances are being made to help Tufts divest from fossil fuel investments. I sincerely feel that this is one of the most important actions Tufts can take as a university to help its students. Climate change is a serious issue that is threatening the future of all the students Tufts is working so hard to help educate. The biggest tool that all of these companies have is money and they are using it to corrupt our government and prevent any progress from being made on addressing climate change. That's why removing funding from these companies is one of the most important actions Tufts can take to protect its students. It will send a strong message. I loved attending Tufts and would love to contribute, but I will not contribute until Tufts divests. I hope that Tufts divests as soon as possible.
