What: Stop the Money Pipeline Action
Join us to demand that Wells Fargo cut financing for expansion of fossil fuels. There will be street theater, signs and flyering to alert the public to the bank’s ongoing funding of climate chaos. This is part of a national Stop the Money Pipeline week of action.
We have one simple demand for Wells Fargo: stop providing financial services to any corporation expanding its fossil fuel operations. In other words, stop funding the climate crisis. At Wells Fargo’s general meeting last month, a shareholder resolution was presented, urging the bank NOT to fund ANY future fossil projects. The bank urged shareholders to vote against the resolution, which then got only 11% approval by shareholders, but even 11% gets leadership’s attention. We must keep up the pressure!
Come by between 4 and 6pm on May 18th and show that you have had it with Wells Fargo’s business as usual while people are dying and the climate crisis escalates.
We are looking for volunteers to help in the following roles:
- Safety Marshals/De-escalators
- Flyer Team
- Banner Holders
If you can help with any of those, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or let us know on our event RSVP form.
Please spread the word and invite friends through the Facebook event here…or just show up!
