    Letter to the editor: Sara Gobets

    Dear La Voz,


    I want to thank Nathan Mitchell and the staff of La Voz for covering 350 De Anza’s efforts to persuade the FHDA Foundation Board to divest from top carbon dioxide polluting companies.

    From what I understand, 350 De Anza is comprised of a relatively small group of students and I commend their efforts to bring attention to this global problem.

    I wasn’t even aware this chapter of the international group existed until they presented their proposal to the Senate at the DASB meeting a couple of weeks ago.

    Honestly, I’m a bit shocked the Foundation Board is still invested in Exxon and Chevron considering De Anza’s efforts to “go green” with projects like the electric car charging stations and new solar panels in the parking lots.

    I sincerely hope when 350 De Anza presents its petition in August, the FHDA Board will listen to the will of the students and approve the divestment.
