UPDATE: 02/19 -- We made our goal! By midnight, we had raised $4,125, exceeding our $4,000 goal! This means we are moving forward with planning the SHAME Tour with two community activists from Argentina. Our second -- and last -- fundraising goal for this campaign is meeting $6,000 by the end of March. 

UPDATE, 02/10 ---  From now until February 19, every dollar you donate will be DOUBLED by a matching challenge donor!

WHAT WE'RE DOING

This semester, we're bringing community leaders from northern Argentina to Harvard Yard for the Stop Harvard's Mismanagement & Exploitation (SHAME) Tour—and we need your help to make it happen. We have to raise $4,000 for visa fees and international airfare by February 19.

WHY WE'RE DOING IT

Last semester, we sent letters, signed petitions, and demonstrated outside in the rain and cold. We even published an investigative report and produced a mini-documentary. But Harvard President Drew Faust refused to enact responsible ownership policies, ignoring the requests of people who suffer every day from Harvard-owned plantations.

Will she ignore community leaders who travel 4,884 miles to defend their way of life? There's only one way to find out: Donate what you can and help take our efforts to the next level.

RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT AT HARVARD COALITION

The Responsible Investment at Harvard Coalition is a group of students, alumni, faculty, staff, and other community members who are dedicated to changing the way that Harvard manages its money.

RESPONSIBLE OWNERSHIP CAMPAIGN

Responsible Ownership campaign exposes poor social and environmental practices at Harvard's directly owned investments and proposes a set of policies to fix the problem. 

COMMUNITY PARTNERS IN ARGENTINA

We work with a coalition of seven community organizations in Corrientes, Argentina, including Guardianes del Ibera, a network of village-based grassroots groups; Friends of the Earth Argentina, a national environmental justice organization; and the Association of Small Producers, a provincial campesino organization.
