There's a lot happening this month to call attention to how the Big Five Banks are financing climate change -- and what we can do to help!
Fossil Fools Day of Action!
At least fifty actions took place across the country as people step up to call out RBC for funding the violation of Indigenous rights and bankrolling the climate crisis. This is especially important after last week's raid of Wet'suwet'en territory during which 5 land defenders were arrested by RCMP.
Couldn't make it it out? or want to do more? Send a quick email (here's a template you can edit) to a bank exec or give them a call.
