Proven by science, and intellectually, morally, and ethically indisputable; please divest from fossil fuels.

Dear Tufts,

Please practice what you teach and act as leaders of social and environmental justice. Until I see Tufts acting in genuinely sustainable and justice-oriented ways, I will donate to community organizations rather than to Tufts.


Michael Kramer, Arts and Sciences, 1988

There are plenty of well-proven ways to earn competitive return for the endowment without fossil fuels, tobacco, pornography, major polluters, mines in the Congo, and much more. It's time to realize that it is not only unethical to profit from unhealthy and exploitative practices, but when it comes to atmospheric carbon, our survival literally depends on it. Divestment sends a powerful message to companies, policymakers and society at large about the steps we need to take to become a more just and sustainable civilization. Now is the time.
