UPDATE: The Banking Commission meeting has been moved to Wednesday May 31st. Keep spreading the word and calling Mayor de Blasio and Comptroller Stringer.
NYC can #DefundDAPL Wednesday May 31st!
On May 31st, the NYC Banking Commission will meet to approve the NYC Designated Banks, aka the banks the city will continue to use for the next 2 years.
At that meeting, we’re asking the Banking Commission, made up of Mayor de Blasio, Comptroller Stringer and Commissioner Jiha, to end the city’s relationship with Wells Fargo and other banks that fund the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The Dakota Access Pipeline violates indigenous sovereignty, endangers the drinking water of millions of people, and it threatens us here in NYC by contributing to climate change.
Now is the time for NYC to stand with Standing Rock and put its money where its mouth is. Join us and tell the NYC Banking Commission to #DefundDAPL.
