Fund Schools Not Wall Street

Start: January 19, 2017 3:30 PM

On Thursday, the day before Trump's inauguration, we're calling on Wells Fargo and other banks to end their funding of the Dakota Access pipeline and restore the millions of dollars they owe to the Philadelphia schools. In 2013, Wells Fargo and other banks took over $162 million from the Philadelphia public schools -- and every year, 10% of our schools budget goes directly to big banks like Wells.

Wells Fargo is about to win big under the Trump presidency. One of their board members, Elaine Chao, is about to have a position in Trump's cabinet -- along with many other bankers and members of the 1%.

Meanwhile, Wells Fargo is under huge scrutiny for creating 2 million fake accounts for customers -- including targeting non English speakers to make life insurance accounts in their names. Wells has a practice of ripping off customers, taxpayers and homeowners and investing in private prisons and projects like the Dakota Access pipeline that is threatening Native land.

Join us Thursday to demand Wells stop funding the Dakota Access pipeline and restore the millions of dollars they've taken from the Philadelphia schools!
