Responsible Endowments Coalition, Executive Director

Marcie Smith

  • I am fasting for fossil fuel divestment because climate change is a political and economic challenge as serious as human civilization has ever faced. The students who are fasting to pressure Harvard to divest represent the best in our culture: responsibility, sacrifice, and hope. The trustees who refuse to divest represent the worst: greed, willful ignorance, and a refusal to clean up one's own mess. We know how history will remember this fight.
