What's with Blackrock?
Students Demanding Change
Started a conversation around endowment investments
Created murals, banners, and posters in protest
Organized with students, faculty, and affinity groups to approach the issue
Drafted and passed a Pitzer College Student Senate resolution calling for a full divestment from Blackrock
Get in contact with your professors and advisors to help us pass the resolution in College Council and pressure President Oliver to officially divest!
In the fall of 2019, Pitzer College students discovered their college was working alongside Wall Street giant Blackrock, major investor in issues ranging from immigrant detention and private prisons to arctic drilling, fossil fuels, and deforestation.
Today we fight for divestment.
