Show up to tell Bank of America to stop banking on pollution and climate chaos.

Last year, Bank of America committed to achieving “net zero emissions by 2050.” And earlier this month, they announced 2030 targets to reduce the emissions “intensity” from its investments.  But the truth is that between 2016 and 2021, Bank of America provided $232 billion in lending and underwriting to the fossil fuel industry. That makes …

Stop FERC’s cowardly Betrayal of climate and environmental justice

Big Oil should pay windfall profits tax

Big oil is ripping you off – time for a windfall profits tax

Fossil fuel companies are using the war in Ukraine as a pretext to raise gas prices, gouge customers, and doom the climate.

Defund Formosa Plastics

Defund Formosa Plastics

Last year, every major US bank committed to achieving “net zero emissions by 2050.” But those same banks are continuing to fund the expansion of the fossil fuel industry.

Tell banks to stop funding climate chaos

Become a customer for climate justice and bank on action, not on climate change

Since the Paris Agreement was signed, Wall Street banks have loaned nearly $1.2 trillion to the fossil fuel industry. That money isn’t coming from the government, or from rich investors — it’s coming from regular customers with bank accounts and credit cards just like you and me. Now, customers like you and me are fighting …

Stop Willow Call to action

Join the fight to protect the Arctic! 

Just before he left office, the defeated former President Trump issued a rushed permit for a massive new oil and gas drilling project in the Arctic.

Willow project alone would produce …
