Help Flatten the Climate Pollution Curve!

Image: virtual Chase action, March 28, 2020

UPDATE (4-23-20): Here's a six min video of our/your climate strikes vs. Chase Bank today. Enjoy! And share it if you'd like. Link: https://youtu.be/RH3b8HtT6cw.

On Earth Day, April 22, many will be home trying to stay safe. Yet the fossil fuel industry & banks will be taking advantage of the pandemic. For one, work on the Keystone XL pipeline has begun, which could endanger workers and communities due to COVID-19, "man camps", and oil spills.

To pressure Chase Bank-- the world's #1 "banker" of fossil fuels--to stop funding such health disasters, Climate First! as part of the StopTheMoneyPipeline coalition will be organizing an online action vs. the lender during Earth Day 2020.

And we invite you to submit to us a photo or video, sharing how you feel about Chase investing invest billions of dollars in the fossil fuel industry. We'll put your work into a video, and share it on social media on Earth Day. 

NOTE: Deadline (updated) for submissions: Saturday, April 18th, end of day. Too late for this deadline? Go to another one of our webpages to learn how to "run a digital strike vs. Chase Bank" on Earth Day.

First, get creative in making your own Chase Bank action! The following are some ideas to get you started.
1. Take a photo of you and others with signs protesting Chase Bank.
2. Take a video of your at-home Chase protest or march! Even get your favorite pet to join-in.
3. Make a sign or other work of art about Chase. Then show it, and explain what it means to you.
4. Perform a quick skit showing Chase's involvement with fossil fuels.
5. Create a short song or dance about Chase divesting from dirty oil.
6. Tell Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, why you want the lender to change.
7. Ask longtime board member of JPMorgan Chase, Lee Raymond (formerly head of Exxon/Mobil), to resign.
8. Build your own little Chase Bank branch and pour "oil" over it.
