UNC Asheville DivestWe just got off of a video call with Bill McKibben, world-renowned climate activist and a key player in the college and university fossil fuel divestment movement!! We had an awesome discussion with other student organizers across the state on everything from maintaining momentum with COVID to building power in networks to creating a just and equitable future. We are very excited to (hopefully) have Bill in Asheville in October for a postponed visit!!
