I wrote a short article for The Uniter on Divest UWinnipeg, a student-led group organizing to get the University of Winnipeg to pull out their investments from the fossil fuel industry.

It’s impressive work in light of incredibly unequal power dynamics between students and administration.

Will upload the full article when I have permission to, but for now you can read the full article here.
