10 Sep “Reality” Organizing Moment
Hahrie Han teaches organizing at Wellesley – the “real’ way to introduce students to what civic engagement is all about. This is a video made by Ace Wang, the lead organizer in Fossil Free Wellesley, a campaign dedicated to getting Wellesley College to divest from fossil fuels. She launched the campaign as her project in the organizing class in the spring semester of 2013. In that semester, Fossil Free Wellesley got almost 50% of the student body to sign a petition in support, which they delivered to Wellesley College President Kim Bottomly in the meeting shown in the video below. The student telling her story is Ashley Funk, a member of Ace’s leadership team. Their meeting with the Trustees is coming up in October so send your support!
