Denver Defund Climate Disaster Action
Start: Friday, September 27, 2019•12:00 PM
Big banks like JP Morgan Chase & Wells Fargo are the top funders of dirty fossil fuel projects and countless human rights injustices. Join us as we demand an end to the support of dangerous fossil fuel projects in our communities and demand climate justice.
Join us from Noon - 1 p.m. as we hand out information on why defunding climate disaster from big banks like JP Morgan Chase is so important and how individuals can personally divest.
Over 740 individuals, organizations and financial advisers in Colorado, including the City of Denver, have signed the pledge to divest from fossil fuels and reinvest in a cleaner, renewable energy future.

Background: Big banks like JP Morgan Chase & Wells Fargo are the top funders of dirty fossil fuel projects and countless human rights injustices. JPMorgan Chase has loaned $196 billion to fossil fuel companies since the Paris Agreement was signed in late 2015 — enough money to buy 52 pipelines the size and scale of the Dakota Access Pipeline. There’s no other way to put it: JPMorgan Chase is profiting from causing climate change, and it’s the rest of us who are paying for it. Join us as we demand an end to the support of dangerous fossil fuel projects in our communities and demand climate justice.
