National Day of Action

Mar 1, 2023 | Beacon, Climate, News

Tuesday, March 21 at Bellevue Downtown Park

Since the Paris Climate Accord was signed in 2015, four banks have provided over one trillion dollars in financing for the fossil fuel industry, an industry that has no plans to stop building new or expanding oil and gas projects. Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Citibank. It’s our money they are using to bankroll the climate crisis. The dirtiest fossil fuels in the world are financed with money from our bank accounts, credit cards, 401ks. Come, learn, and be a part of the solution to the climate crisis!

Where: Bellevue Downtown Park.

When: Tuesday, March 21: Noon – 1:00 pm with optional march past local banks.

What: Guest speakers, educational materials, interactive game, snacks and beverages. PLUS, an opportunity to cut up your credit card symbolically or actually!

Why: The fossil fuel industry polluting our atmosphere can’t continue without money from banks and investors. If we stop the Big Four Banks—Bank of America, Chase, Citibank, and Wells Fargo—from investing, we help shut down the industry. We don’t want our money and savings to be used to bankroll the climate crisis. We’ve got lots of resources to help you find better banks and credit cards to make the switch.

Come, be a part of the solution to the climate crisis! Contact Marilyn Mayers or Lin Hagedorn.
