Defund Climate Change! Sign on letter to JPMorgan Chase CEO, Jamie Dimon:
Climate change is here, wreaking havoc on our communities with deadly fires, heat waves, droughts, floods, and extreme weather storms. The burning of fossil fuels is the main contributor to climate change, and only getting worse.
Despite the alarming news from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report last fall, 33 of the world’s top private finance banks have financed fossil fuels with nearly $2 TRILLION since the Paris Agreement was signed according to the 2019 Fossil Fuel Finance Report Card. In a time where we need to rapidly move away from fossil fuels, the banks are a critical pillar of support for the fossil fuel industry.
Join RAN and hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals calling on Jamie Dimon, CEO of Chase, to lead his bank to phase out financing fossil fuels and stop financing projects and companies that fail to respect human and Indigenous rights. We will deliver signatures and the letter at the bank's annual shareholder meeting in Chicago on May 21st. This letter is not public and embargoed until May 21st.
