Join Idle No More, 350 Bay Area, and others for a women-led gathering to support water protectors at Standing Rock. This one of many national actions Nov 30th to Dec 2nd to encourage divestment from financial institutions funding the pipeline.
The morning will begin with prayers for the water led by the women of Idle No More SF Bay. Next will be a teach-in on why everyone needs to divest from the financial institutions funding the Dakota Access Pipeline. This will be followed by a prayer walk to several banking institutions funding the DAPL. Educational hand-outs will be available to pass out. The message to the banks will be loud and clear: If you continue to invest in the DAPL project, your customers will choose another bank.
We ask that you close your accounts to protect the water and let us know when you do! Financial institutions listed here:
We are calling on all women to join us and use your voices to either collectively withdraw your money from the banks funding DAPL or support your sisters in action.
While this is a woman led action, everyone is invited to join us!
Come prepared with signs and artwork (Standing Rock and Wells Fargo Divesting) that will visually spread the message loudly! You can download artwork here
