Massive corporate banks are among the fossil fuel industry’s worst accomplices. Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citi, US Bank, HSBC, Capital One—all of the major banks in the United States have sizable investments in fossil fuel corporations and their increasingly destructive new projects. If you have accounts with one of these banks, that means your money is being invested in an industry putting its profits ahead of your health, the health of your planet, and the future of life on Earth.
Taking your money back from the big banks is one of the most fundamental actions you can take to defund the fossil fuel industry. Without their customers’ money, the banks have nothing. Follow our guide to send your big bank a message in the only language it understands.
