Charlotte NC Rise Together to say NoBBP NoACP NoMVP
Start: July 30, 2018• 9:00 AM
North Carolina is ready to #RiseTogether in solidarity with our allies in the Gulf. Here in NC We're fighting to stop the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines, which threaten dozens of our communities, our clean water, and our climate future. A diverse coalition of activists are organizing two major actions - On July 30 in Charlotte, and July 31 in Raleigh.Our Demands are:
- #Divest from fossil fuels - especially Bank of America and Wells Fargo - who are the two largest investors in these pipelines.
- No Pipelines - especially the ACP and MVP, which Governor Roy Cooper has the power stop.
- Clean Energy Now - we demand 100% renewable energy and a just transition with nobody left behind - local cities, towns and counties can lead the way!
This event will meet at the Bank Of America Headquarters in downtown Charlotte (100 North Tryon St.) at 9am (opening time for the bank). Carrying a 50-foot replica of a pipeline, we'll march a short distance down South Tryon Street to the plaza at Two Wells Fargo Center, then continue on to Duke Energy Headquarters at 550 South Tryon. We'll convey our message with speakers, a 50-foot pipeline replica, banners, pamphlets, and other props. Join us on Monday morning to show everyone in Charlotte that our health, safety and climate depend on banks, consumers and our elected leaders acting on these three demands.

From July 16-31 communities are mobilizing for the #RiseTogether Weeks of Action.
