In solidarity with the People vs Fossil Fuels "Week of Action" planned for October 11-15, 2021 in Washington, D.C.--where many will be performing civil disobedience outside the White House in an effort to push President Biden to end the fossil fuel era--Climate First! will run its second action of the week against fossil fuel-supporting banks. Details below.
WHAT: We'll do a "bank walk" to three nearby banks in Takoma Park/Hyattsville, MD.
WHEN: Thursday, October 14, 2021; 11:30 am to 1 pm.
WHERE: Meet in the shopping center parking lot on the NW side of Wells Fargo, 1175 University Blvd E, Takoma Park, MD. Look for a small dark blue Hyundai Elantra. After some planning, we'll walk to the nearby banks. For bus riders, the Takoma Langley Crossroads Transit Center is close-by.
