  • Students from Vassar College’s Fossil Fuel Divestment Campaign began a peaceful sit-in protest on Monday, calling for full divestment from fossil fuel companies. The Vassar students are requesting that the College divest from the 200 corporations that hold the largest coal, oil, and gas reserves, as well as to restructure the College’s administration “to empower the voices of its students, faculty, and alumni.”
