Brochure about Lawrentians Against Apartheid For Divestment (LAAFD) and its campaign to get Lawrence University to totally divest from companies doing business in South Africa. The brochure says that, in 1985, Lawrence University divested $50,000 from companies that did not adhere to the Sullivan Principles. The brochure argues that Lawrence's continuing investment in South Africa helps perpetuate apartheid and thus is contrary to the basic moral principles upheld by the university.
