In less than five weeks, Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Citigroup host their annual shareholder meetings. At those meetings, investors will vote on shareholder resolutions to phase-out fossil fuel financing, respect Indigenous rights and prevent greenwashing. Our state pension will have a big say in whether or not these resolutions pass.

The Washington State Investment Board has close to $2 billion invested in Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Bank of America ― that’s why we’re demanding that our state pension votes for climate justice and Indigenous rights this spring.

There are two things you can do to help:

1. If you’re a Washington state pension fund member, fill out this form. We’d love to get in touch about how you can help.

2. Call the State Treasurer and urge him to ensure WA votes for climate justice. We have the phone number, a call script and call tips for you to use. All you need to do is pick up the phone.

This Tuesday was a big day in the campaign to stop banks funding fossil fuels. There were 102 bank protests in 30 states, including here in Seattle where we took our message to the doors of Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Chase.

Next month will be an even bigger moment in the campaign. How major shareholders like the State of Washington vote on climate resolutions will help determine how quickly big banks move away from fossil fuels.

Let’s make sure Washington is on the right side of history.

In Solidarity
