Help Stop Big Banks That Finance Climate-Wrecking Pipelines

 

This coming Friday, Dec 11th, activists and groups with the Stop the Money Pipeline coalition (STMP) are participating in a COVID-safe "National Day of Action" to put the funders of the toxic Keystone XL and Line 3 pipelines on notice. You can safely join these folks and groups by delivering two letters to a local branch of a big U.S. bank, or other financial institution. 

More information regarding this National Day of Action will be posted in the near future.

Chase Bank--Divest Now From Climate-Wrecking Fossil Fuels!

 

While it was good news that Chase Bank said it would adopt a financing commitment respecting the carbon emission goals of the Paris Climate Accord, we haven't yet seen the details. Therefore, it is critical that everyone keeps pushing Chase to divest from climate-wrecking fossil fuels now!

Climate First! will continue to run its online climate strikes at Chase--the #1 investor in fossil fuels of any bank in the world--every Friday. You can join these virtual climate protests by posting your own climate strike on social media in 4 easy steps:

#1. Create a short legible message on poster board or white paper about how Chase is investing more in climate-wrecking fossil fuels than any other bank on earth.

#2. Take a selfie of yourself (invite your family too!) with your message and/or use the Chase/oil pipeline image below, and insert the photo/image into your post: 

.                                     

#3. Insert a "call to action" in your post by encouraging folks to join our joint climate strike by including the URL: https://www.climatefirst.us/calendar. Then add the hashtags "#HealthIsClimateFirst!" and "#ClimateStrikeOnline". Also, insert "@Chase" and "@ChaseSupport" in your post to get the bank's attention. 

#4. Share your climate strike by posting it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media. If you need additional ideas for your online action, you can find find examples of other related posts by doing a "Google search" of the hashtags: #HealthIsClimateFirst and #ClimateStrikeOnline.
