On March 20th, our friends at Rainforest Action Network released a new report, Banking On Climate Change: Fossil Fuel Finance Report Card 2019: The findings are infuriating. Here’s 3 of them:
JPMorgan Chase is (by far) the world’s largest funder of fossil fuels.
The $194 billion Chase poured into fossil fuels in the last three years is nearly a third higher than the second worst bank, WellsFargo.
Three U.S. banks ― JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America ― are responsible for providing one-third of the world’s fracking funding.
At a time when we need to cut our emissions in half by 2030, JP Morgan Chase is providing tens of billions in loans to build new fossil fuel projects.
Partnering with 350 groups across the country, we are organizing an April 10th National Day of Action to hold the banks accountable for their role in the climate crisis. There are actions already confirmed in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Denver and ten other cities.
In Seattle, we are going to build Affinity Groups to take collective action at every Chase branch in the city. But to do that: we need you. Can you attend a Mass Action Meeting on Wednesday, March 27th?
At this meeting, we will share the plan for taking action together, share the campaign plan to win, and then jump right into the planning the action together.
It’s almost two years since we launched our Chase campaign, but for as long as Chase is profiting from climate disaster we’ll be here: holding them accountable. We hope that you will be too.
Note: The April 10th action will be a family friendly action.
