Big Banks: Stop Funding Fossil Fuels! SF Bay Area Passover Action Tue 4/19 4-5pm
Passover is a celebration of freedom. The holiday carries many lessons today as we face the climate crisis, working to free ourselves from the destruction of the fossil fuel economy and create a world where everyone can thrive.
During the weeks around Passover, Jews and allies will gather outside the branches and offices of the banks and asset managers that exacerbate the climate crisis by investing their money in Fossil Fuel Pharaohs: oil, gas, and coal companies. We will publicly proclaim today’s fossil-fueled plagues, and lift up matzah as a symbol of urgency, calling on these financial institutions to move their dough. Join Dayenu circles and other Jewish and non-Jewish allies from across the Bay area on Tuesday, April 19th from 4pm-5pm at BlackRock’s San Francisco office at 400 Howard street. Come help hold BlackRock accountable to the promises they’ve made to prioritize protecting the climate in their investment strategy and act as an example for other financial institutions.
We mourn the war in Ukraine and the loss of life, and we recognize how fossil fuels are funding the invasion of Ukraine (and how renewable energy can make us all safer). We will call on banks and asset managers to stop their investments, not just in Russian oil and gas, but in all fossil fuels.
