Description

On this week’s edition of Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, gets you ready for Fossil Fuel Divestment Day on Thursday, February 13th with three young activists from the Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition (KSEC). You’ll hear from Beau Revlett, an Organizing Fellow with KSEC; Grace Engelman, a UofL sophomore organizing for divestment; and Laura McAllister, a University of Kentucky senior organizing for divestment. KSEC has been coordinating around fossil fuel divestment and statewide actions around Fossil Fuel Divestment Day (February 13) and in the week around Earth Day.
