Give Climate Justice a Home
The Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network, a youth-powered climate justice organization, is building out its capacity to support organizers and are seeking community partners who want to become Housing Sponsors and provide free or low-cost housing to climate organizers.
When: Starting now. Arrangements will reflect both the needs of the Housing Sponsors and of the Organizer, but longer time frames for sponsorship (3months-1year) are more ideal in order to provide stability for our Organizers.
