Last Thursday, a March for Climate Action was held at the IU Bloomington campus. The event was organized by the group Reinvest IU, who want the University to sell off their stocks in fossil fuel companies, and invest in renewable energy and other environmentally sustainable projects. A mix of students, faculty and community members took part in the march, and the event featured music by the Jefferson Street Parade Band. WFHB correspondent Dan Young reports.
