Lauren Breynaert ’16 talks to students. <br />
Occidental College students march in a rally organized by Fossil Free Occidental on Nov. 14, 2014. The group hopes to end Oxy’s reliance on fossil fuels by freezing all investments in the 200 largest fossil-fuel companies (measured by their proven carbon reserves in oil, gas or coal) and over the next five to ten years sell the stock in these same companies, and then reinvest 5%, at minimum, of the divested portfolio in socially responsible investments.
