In March, six of 13 D.C. City Councilmembers co-sponsored a resolution to DIVEST the District from Wells Fargo over its unjust banking practices. On APRIL 18, join members of the DC ReInvest Coalition for a MASS MEETING to plug into our campaign to demand D.C. cut ties with banks that support dirty pipelines, private prisons, and racist, predatory lending practices!
As a direct investor in dirty pipelines such as #DakotaAccess and #KeystoneXL, Wells Fargo is responsible for sponsoring violations of Indigenous sovereignty and human rights. The bank’s support of the private prison industry — many of which are used as ICE detention centers — and racist, illegal lending practices are all the more reason for D.C. to cut ties with Wells Fargo. In fact, the U.S. government recently gave Wells Fargo a FAILING grade for its “pervasive pattern and practice of discriminatory and illegal credit practices across multiple lines of business within the bank.”
It’s time to DIVEST from banks that profit from human suffering, and REINVEST in our own communities in D.C. and around the world.
At the meeting, participants will discuss:
- How DC ReInvest got started, and where we are now
- How you can plug into the campaign as a volunteer
- So many upcoming actions — see you there!
