What

This is one strike for the climate among hundreds happening worldwide on September 20th. We will walk out of our workplaces, schools and homes to demand aggressive action to solve not only the climate crisis, but all crises: inequality, racism, poverty, etc. We are facing an existential threat that will affect, not only us, but generations to come. We need to come together to demand comprehensive, drastic action to stop ecological collapse.

Tuesday, September 24

All day: JPMorgan Chase has loaned $196 billion to fossil fuel companies since the Paris Agreement was signed in late 2015—enough money to buy 52 pipelines the size and scale of the Dakota Access Pipeline. There’s no other way to put it: JPMorgan Chase is profiting from causing climate change, and it’s the rest of us who are paying for it. Can you call JPMorgan Chase CEO, Jamie Dimon, today to demand that he stop funding climate wrecking fossil fuel companies? We’ve got a script ready for you so you know what to say.
