On Friday, Tufts students concluded a three-day sit-in after securing a written statement from their administration agreeing to an in-person meeting between students and the chair of the Board of Trustees. The Tufts action was the latest in a series of sit-ins and blockades for divestment on campuses all over the country. Read all about the sit-in in The Boston Globe, and check out the photos here!

Last week, hundreds of Harvard students, faculty, and alumni, along with members of the greater Boston community, shut down business as usual at one of the country's most powerful institutions.
From Sunday night to Friday evening, the Yard echoed with chants and songs calling on Harvard to divest from fossil fuels. A five-day blockade prevented administrators from entering Massachusetts Hall. Rallies, marches, panels, and vigils brought huge crowds to campus, united in a single demand: divest now.
It was an incredible week -- and it's only the beginning. We'll keep turning up the heat until Harvard chooses to stand on the right side of history. Stay tuned!
