It was good news when JPMorgan Chase Bank recently announced that it would adopt a financing commitment that respects the emission goals of the Paris Climate Accord. However, since we all know that the "devil is in the details", it is critical that everyone keeps pushing Chase Bank to quickly "flatten" its climate pollution curve.
Thus, Climate First! will continue to run its online climate strikes at Chase Bank--the #1 investor in fossil fuels of any bank in the world--every Friday until the bank does what is needed to address our climate crisis. You can easily join the climate protests against Chase Bank by posting your own virtual climate strike on social media in 4 easy steps:
#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.)
Periodically, we will compile people's virtual Chase Bank climate strikes, and share them widely via social media.
