Who are we?

Divest Smith College is a student led climate justice organization whose mission is to align Smith’s investments with its community’s morals, primarily through advocating for fossil fuel divestment.

Divest Smith College began in 2013 and has been growing ever since. We follow other divest campaigns throughout Smith’s history, including from Big Tobacco, the apartheid system in South Africa, and other morally reprehensible issues and industries. We believe divestment is an effective way to pursue climate justice by politically bankrupting the primary contributor to climate destruction that disproportionately affects marginalized communities — the fossil fuel industry.
