Severe storms have battered Chicago, Madison and Milwaukee. Temperature records have been broken in California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and South Carolina.
These extreme weather events are a reminder of how important it is that our banks treat the climate crisis like the emergency it is.
In May 2021, the IEA, the world’s most respected energy modeler, announced that to have a fifty percent chance of limiting global warming to 1.5°C, there can be no new oil and gas fields developed.

This is a massive win!!! (Here’s Leah talking about just how big of a victory it is!)
We wanted to take this moment specifically to celebrate this win with you! You’ve earned it! If you’re feeling festive, click here to tweet a thank you to the White House for invoking the DPA on climate!
There is so much more work to come. Let’s Go Joe is still moving forward calling for executive actions on healthcare and student debt. We have our work cut out for us matching the ideals of this country with its reality. But, let’s enjoy this moment. We couldn’t have done it without one another.
Together, we are Indivisible.
