Divestment Day Rally

  • Union Square Union Square New York, NY

Join Grassroots Action New York, Bronx Climate Justice North and more at Union Square to tell big banks like Wells Fargo, Citibank, TD, Chase, and Bank of America how we feel about their decision to fund the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

As one of our first actions as a member of a coalition of NYC groups to start putting pressure on the city of New York to divest from banks funding the DAPL, we are putting our money where our mouths are. 

We created this list of awesome banks that you can switch to that don't invest in fossil fuels: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oU2Gl8nfchMciv97bTwcm3sxle-Z7cNs3t87dJLbMbo/edit?usp=sharing

Pick one of these or find another one that works for you then follow along with our divestment campaign before #DivestmentDay to get ready to close your old bank account with us. Check out grassrootsactionny.com/divest for all of our divestment resources.

Then, on March 18, we will rally in Union Square then head to the banks to close our accounts together! 

We will be leading groups of people to various banks to close their accounts together and want to make sure we prepare correctly so, if you haven't already, please fill out the form in the "tickets" link to let us know which bank you will be divesting from.
