TAKE ACTION!

In fact, here are three events you can plug into within the next week!

  1. 1T Day: On April 25th student loan debt will reach 1 trillion dollars! Along with other cities, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington DC are rallying against the profiteers who have burdened students and graduates around the country with debt.
  2. The Takeover of Wells Fargo Shareholder Meeting: On April 24th the 99% are shutting down Wells Fargo’s Annual Shareholder Meeting in San Francisco at the Merchants Exchange Building.
  3. Protest the BOA Shareholder Meeting: On May 9th the Rainforest Action Network, along with other organizations, are protesting at the Bank of America headquarters for their annual shareholder meeting in Charlotte, NC.

This campaign has three core parts:

1. A demand for divestment from the Wall Street banks.
2. A call for the new economic paradigm of real community investment.
3. Taking the first step towards a responsible endowment.
