Monsanto doesn't deserve our money!

“Recently, Whitman Investment Company (WIC)invested $8,000 in Monsanto, a socially and environmentally unethical agribusiness company.  When members of Campus Climate Challenge found out about this, they decided to approach WIC and encourage them to sell the stock and take into greater consideration the ethical ramifications of their actions.  After much spirited debate, WIC sold the stock on May 5th.  Campus Climate Challenge will follow up by writing a letter to Monsanto to inform them of these events.  It is important that even though WIC is no longer a shareholder of Monsanto, we let Monsanto know that their practices were behind the decision to de-invest in the company.”
