How To Get Involved
There are many ways you can get involved, from individual actions that support the campaign to actively organizing with the Fossil Free UC Alumni Network! Check out the list below for ways to get started:
- Sign our petition.
- Withhold Donations. When the university cold-calls or mails you to ask for donations, we encourage you to respond with “I will donate to the UC when it divests from fossil fuels.”
- Letter Writing Campaign. We encourage all alumni to write to their Chancellors, the Board of Regents, or President Napolitano demanding divestment. See here for tips on how to contact your Chancellors or the Regents, and for tips on messaging.
- Donors for Divestment. The crown jewel of how we may as alumni leverage our power, donate any amount to Donors for Divestment to build up a fund that will convince the Regents that divesting from fossil fuels will incur more alumni donations! The fund will be donated to the UC’s General Endowment Pool upon full divestment. Even $5 helps (though pleas donate as much as you can!). Donate today, and pass the word on to your friends!
- Commit to organizing for the long-haul by signing the national Alumni Divestment Network’s Organizing Pledge (and have your meme featured below!).
