Leap UofT is a new and growing student group committed to climate justice. This year, we’re relaunching the campaign to get UofT investments out of the fossil fuel industry. At the same time, we’re working on developing a vision–a local “Leap Manifesto”–for a just and sustainable university that draws the connections between our climate and divestment work and other struggles for justice.
We’ve been re-strategizing UofT’s fossil fuel divestment campaign over the fall semester. In order to put pressure on the UofT administration at large–where divestment is currently at a standstill–we’re launching smaller divestment campaigns at individual colleges.
In order to introduce our plans to students at large, we’ll hold two events on January 24 and January 25 from 6-8 PM. At the events we will do an introduction to the Leap, the history of the divestment campaign at UofT, and how we’re going about launching a local campaign at Vic and Trinity College! If you can’t come out on Wednesday or Thursday night, don’t worry! There will be more ways to get involved, and we’re always looking for new members.
P.S. We got refreshments, so bring a friend!
