JPMorgan Chase has got to be feeling the heat, because you answered the call to action! Over 2,000 of you called JPMorgan Chase to tell them to #defundtarsands and to cut ties with TransCanada, the company behind the Keystone XL pipeline.
On top of all that, on December 7 a small group of water protectors made their way to The Plaza Hotel in New York City to the Wells Fargo Thought Leadership Forum, an exclusive gathering of over 1,000 of the world’s largest investors. The water protectors attempted to deliver the petition with your signatures to Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase’s CEO. These peaceful activists were forcibly ejected — but our collective message was heard loud and clear: NO KXL. Defund tar sands.
- “I had been a Chase customer since 1964, but closed my accounts because of their addiction to funding the non-sustainable fossil fuel industry.”
- “I no longer use my Chase credit card and have advised my financial advisor to take out my investments with JPMorgan. I was trying to say this when I was cut off!”
- “I encouraged funding for green energy as opposed to tar sands.”
