Small Steps toward Climate Justice

Bob Lanfelder
On Relevance (March 2021)

Dear Friends: Thanks to Shelly Tanenbaum, Kathy Barnhart, and Rick Herbert for their Western Friend article (Jan/Feb 2021) on their role in encouraging University of California’s divestment from fossil fuel companies. I appreciate their Quaker modesty about their role and about what divestment can do. By itself, divestment cannot bring Exxon, Chevron, Shell,
& Company to their knees, but . . . “small steps,” as some Friends say.
