Sign the petition calling for CSU to DIVEST NOW!

Colorado State University has more than $7 MILLION of its endowment invested in fossil fuels. We’d like to change that. Sign the petition calling for CSU to DIVEST NOW!

We challenge CSU to use its power as the socio-political, economic, and academic center of Fort Collins and the greater Northern Colorado area to move its money from the fossil fuel industry and advocate for a sustainable and just future.

For a university that places so much value on its STARS sustainability rating and paints itself as progressive and environmentally aware, they continue to fund the fossil fuel industry. It is undeniable that the extraction and burning of fossil fuels are causing the climate crisis, and by investing in such, CSU remains complicit in combating it. As a community, we can create a change. Join our movement today, sign the petition or email divestcsu@gmail.com to get involved. 

Ask Representative Neguse to Oppose the Drift Toward Nuclear War

According to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, it is 100 seconds to midnight – the same as it was in 2020 and 2021, the closest it’s been since the “Doomsday Clock” project was initiated in 1947.  This is largely because the leaders of nuclear-armed states, including the United States and Russia, appear to be sleepwalking their way toward nuclear war.

Partners for Peace is calling for passage of House Resolution 1185, which – among other things – demands that President Biden  “embrace the goals and provisions of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and make nuclear disarmament the centerpiece of the national security policy of the United States.”  Please send a short note to Representative Joe Neguse asking him to cosponsor this bill by clicking here.  You can compose your own message, or send the following one developed by Partners for Peace.  Personalizing your letter is always best.  Thanks!

Subject: Please cosponsor H.R. 1185

Dear Representative Neguse:

I ask you to cosponsor House Resolution 1185, “Embracing the goals and provisions of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons,” which was introduced by Representative Jim McGovern on June 16th of this year.

President Biden casually referred to the possibility of “Armageddon” being touched off as a result of the war in Ukraine.  The U.S. Government should be doing all it can to prevent this from happening.  Much more can be done than is currently being done.  Co-sponsoring and working for passage or H.R. 1185 would be good way for you to help avert nuclear disaster.

That resolution:

“(1) calls on the President to embrace the goals and provisions of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and make nuclear disarmament the centerpiece of the national security policy of the United States; and

(2) calls on the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, all other Federal and congressional leaders of the United States and the American people to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by—

(A) renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first;

(B) ending the President’s sole authority to launch a nuclear attack;

(C) taking the nuclear weapons of the United States off hair-trigger alert;

(D) canceling the plan to replace the nuclear arsenal of the United States with modernized, enhanced weapons; and

(E) actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to mutually eliminate their nuclear arsenals.”

Please sign on to cosponsor H.R. 1185.

Sincerely,

-->
