Fossil Free UC, student-based advocacy group, May 12, 2016

Fossil Free UC was formed in 2012 out of California Student Sustainability Coalition’s End Coal campaign, and ever since has called on the UC to divest from the top 200 fossil fuel companies with the largest carbon reserves. As a student-based advocacy group, we call on the University of California to immediately freeze any new investment in the 200 coal, oil, and natural gas companies with the largest carbon reserves, and to divest both directly owned and commingled funds in these companies within five years. Claire Watts is a second year Computer Science major and faculty outreach organizer with Fossil Free UCSC. Cormac Martinez del Rio is an organizer with Fossil Free UC, a trainer with the Student Sierra Coalition, and has worked with the Center for Creative Ecologies at UCSC.
