Join DC Re(sponsible) Investment Coalition: #DCReInvest as they continue to support and cheer on several fellow community members in closing their Wells Fargo accounts.This action is part of the larger call for DC and its communities to end their relationships with DAPL investors, starting with Wells Fargo.
As many of you know last week the D.C. City Council At-Large Councilmember David Grosso introduced the “sense of the council” resolution, and was supported by Council members Brianne Nadeau, Elissa Silverman, Charles Allen, Vincent Gray and Anita Bonds. The resolution cited Wells Fargo’s investment in the Dakota Access Pipeline, its lending to private prisons and high-profile payouts to settle race discrimination and customer service allegations.
#DCReInvest continues to lay the groundwork for DC to establish socially just, responsible investing practices that ensure our city does not endorse projects like DAPL in the future. #DCReInvest stands with Standing Rock and all who are showing up to protect indigenous sovereignty and the land and water. #MniWiconi #WaterIsLife
