A sample script:

"Hello, my name is _____. I am a (student/staff member/professor/etc.) at UNM and I am concerned about UNM’s fossil fuel investments.

 

I am calling to ask you to please consider UNM LEAF's complaint about the UNM Foundation's investments in fossil fuels being in violation of the Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act. The Foundation should not be investing in companies that are contrary to UNM missions and values and that threaten the future of UNM students and community members.

 

Closing thoughts/stuff you want to add: 

  • Ex: Could you give me a timeline of when you believe that the attorney general will get around to reviewing this complaint?

  • Ex: Other reasons you are concerned, etc. 

 

Thank you!"

What is divestment?  Why does it matter? How does it work?
