350 Madison Plans Protest March to Demand that University of Wisconsin Divest from Fossil Fuels, Noon, Friday

The organization 350,Madison.org has announced it has scheduled the following:
April 29, 2016, 12:00–1:00pm
Randall St. at Union South, UW–Madison

Please join us on Friday, April 29, in marching to the UW Foundation and presenting the governing board with an open letter urging divestment from fossil fuels. We also will be presenting the board with a large “check” representing $7,000 in donations diverted from the Foundation and invested instead in fossil-free funds.

Let’s come together to call on the governing board of the UW Foundation to divest from fossil fuels and develop new investment strategies that prioritize renewable energy sources and clean technologies!

WHAT: March for Fossil Fuel Divestment
WHEN: Friday, April 29, 12:00pm
WHERE: Gather outside Union South (Randall St. entrance). We’ll march down University Ave. to hold a rally in front of the UW Foundation (1848 University Ave.).
