Referendum an overwhelming success! YES!

February 13, 2013 at 3:58 am Leave a comment

Today the UNC student body voted on a referendum attached to the ballot for student elections. An overwhelming 77% voted that they supported the UNC Sierra Student Coalition’s goal to get the university to divest their $2.1 billion endowment from the dirty coal industry.

This is similar to the referendum Harvard allowed their students to vote on, except at Harvard there was a 72% approval. This is a huge success for our campaign.

More to come on this topic later! We will be having a press conference addressing our success and what it means on Thursday, February 14th at 12:15 PM in front of the Old Well.

We voted YES!!!!! We’d like to thank the student body for supporting our campaign in such an influential way. This will hopefully grant our campaign the driving pressure we need in order to convince the administration of the need for divestment. The student body has spoken, will they listen?
