Salon duc Tape – DivestCSU Campaign – October 28th, 2022

**********

How can a university that holds over $7 million in fossil fuel investments call itself “sustainable”?

On Friday, October 28th, Riley Ruff of 350 Northern Colorado will be joined by three volunteers to talk about the new DivestCSU campaign.  According to Riley, Colorado State University holds over $7 million in fossil fuel investments. For a university that paints itself as sustainable and just, this is unacceptable.  DivestCSU aims to hold CSU accountable and call for the University to not only divest their endowment but take a stand in Fort Collins as a leader in the community. Riley and the others will discuss DivestCSU’s demands and how to join the effort to hold the University accountable.

Riley (they/them) grew up in Colorado, and their passion for the outdoors and conservation started at a young age.  Now, as a college student at Colorado State University, Riley studies Ecosystem Science and Sustainability and Spanish and has an extensive background in community organizing, engagement and education.  From getting students involved in local conservation and clean-up efforts, to collaborating with senatorial candidates regarding climate policy, Riley brings a lot of great experience to the climate movement and looks forward to bringing their passion for intersectional environmentalism to the NoCo team.  Riley has climbed 15 14,000 ft. peaks in Colorado and aspires to summit all 52.  They enjoy reading, painting and taking care of their plants in their free time.

Salon duc Tape, a public forum sponsored by the Northern Colorado Alliance for a Livable Future, meets on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month from 7:00 — 9:00 p.m. via Zoom.  We will continue meeting virtually until COVID-19 ceases to be a serious threat to public health.  You will need to register in advance for this salon here.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information – including a new link – about joining the salon.
