On Friday, October 29, 2021, young people are rising-up around the world to demand an immediate end to the funding of fossil fuel expansion. In solidarity with the youth, Climate First! and others will attend a rally this Friday at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve ("Federal Reserve Board") in Washington, D.C. In the rally, we'll demand that the Federal Reserve Board direct the nation's banks to take climate risk in account when investing their billions of dollars into climate-wrecking fossil fuels.
