Harvard Heat Week

A week of action calling on Harvard University to divest from fossil fuels

Students, faculty, alumni, and members of the Harvard community came together April 12th 17th to speak out for climate justice, learn from one another, and take principled action. The climate crisis leaves no room for neutrality — together, we’re telling Harvard to stand on the right side of history.
