Since its inception in 2012, Divest Whitman has carried out a dynamic campus campaign. The span of its activism includes conducting independent research, attending national climate conferences, coordinating with Whitman faculty and student government, and sponsoring rallies and actions on campus. In 2014, Whitman held a mock wedding between “Ms. Whitman” and “Mr. Fossil Fuels,” which was featured by the Associated Press and the local ABC station’s evening news. In 2015, Divest Whitman hosted a Climate March with 200 attendees, and a sit-in inside Memorial Hall during the spring Board of Trustee meeting with 272 attendees. That same year Divest Whitman passed three successful pieces of legislation: an ASWC resolution that calculated the financial implications of divestment and proposed a specific request, a faculty resolution with near unanimous support, and a student referendum with 85 percent of students voting in favor.
