Ask your city council to divest
So back in early February I wrote my city council asking them to divest all city funds and assets from Wells Fargo due to its financing the Dakota Access pipeline as well as its huge fraudulent opening of thousands of accounts on behalf of its customers without their knowledge or authorization.
3 days after making that request, I got a response saying it was added to the agenda for discussion and vote.
I then started emailing and facebooking interested groups and within 3 days we acquired over 400 signatures, asking the council to support divesting, as well as having a couple dozen people show up to the city council meeting in person to ask them to divest.
On February 14th, the City of Santa Monica joined 2 other cities in declaring its intent to divest all city funds and resources from Wells Fargo and other banks who participated in supporting the Dakota Access pipeline or similar activities. Over 400 million from my city alone.
This started with 1 email from a nobody and sharing this with like minded individuals impacting a bank institution to the tune of nearly half a billion dollars.
I'm asking you to do the same. Email your council members or better yet, show up in person and bring some friends.
Share with me their response, your success or not and I'll give you 50 Simbi. :)
