Youth Demand: JP Morgan Chase to End Fossil Fuel Expansion!
Start: Tuesday, May 17, 2022•10:00 AM
On May 17th, 2022 the Youth Climate Finance Alliance is mobilizing to end fossil fuel expansion by targeting JP Morgan Chase, the world’s largest funder of fossil fuels.
The world is burning, and megabanks are throwing fuel on the fire. Frontline communities, scientists, and youth are urgently calling to keep fossil fuels in the ground. Yet megabanks like JPMorgan Chase are choosing to fund and enable massive new fossil fuel projects like the Line 3 pipeline in Minnesota, with no signs of slowing down.
On May 17th, young people are rising up for JP Morgan Chase’s 2022 Annual General Meeting. In the midst of the financial industry’s shareholder season, youth climate organizers are calling on shareholders to call out Chase’s greenwashing and inadequate climate policies by voting in favor of the proposed resolution to end fossil fuel expansion. Passing this resolution would mean no more pipelines, mines, refineries, etc funded by Chase.
