Five years ago, 350 Seattle helped organize a mass civil disobedience action in which we shut down thirteen branches of JPMorgan Chase. Our demand then was simple: stop funding fossil fuels.

Five years later, Chase still hasn’t gotten the message ― in 2021, Chase funneled over $61 billion into the fossil fuel industry, more than any other bank in the world.

It’s clearer than ever that we need a broad-based movement to hold banks like Chase accountable.

So, on Tuesday, 350 Seattle is partnering with other members of the Stop the Money Pipeline coalition to host the Wall Street’s Moment of Truth – People or Fossil Fuels campaign rally.

This comes at a key moment. Over the next eight weeks, shareholders at every major US bank and several major insurance companies will vote on whether or not to end their support of fossil fuel expansion.

This is a huge opportunity to force banks to stop funding the climate crisis ― but they’ll only do it if we make them. That’s what Tuesday’s rally is all about.

During the campaign rally, we will:

  • Hear from Senator Elizabeth Warren about how big banks are funding the crisis
  • Share our plans for the Wall Street’s Moment of Truth campaign and let you know how you can get involved
  • Take action together to demand that banks, insurance companies, and investors take meaningful action this shareholder season

We have a powerful lineup of speakers confirmed, including Nemo Guiquita of the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of the Ecuadorian Amazon; Roishetta Ozane with Healthy Gulf; Terrell Iron Shell of the Future Coalition, and Third Act! founder Bill McKibben.

Join us on Tuesday at 5PT / 8ET for the Wall Street’s Moment of Truth: People or Fossil Fuels Campaign Rally.  

In solidarity,
Alec and the Stop the Money Pipeline team
