Helen Cane

Major: Economics and development 

A co-founder of Divest Barnard, Helen continues to be awed by the immense power and creativity of student organizing, and by the love and support of the divest community. She co-founded Barnard Divest at the beginning of her sophomore year, because she believes that Barnard is violating its mission to support the future of its students and support the advancement of women if it is financially supporting an industry that is destroying the futures of women around the world. While fighting for divestment at Barnard, she continues to be awed by the immense power and creativity of student organizing, and by the love and support of the divest community. She plans to commit the rest of her life to fighting for economic and environmental justice.
