350 Mass Greater Franklin Node, Special Meeting: Drop the Dirty Banks. Thursday, March 30, 7 PM

350 Mass Greater Franklin Node, Special Meeting: Drop the Dirty Banks
Dear friends:

Please read this notice about a special educational Zoom meeting presented by the 350 Mass Greater Franklin Node, Thursday, March 30, at 7:00 PM. 

Drop the Dirty Banks!
Banks are using our money and credit cards to bankroll the climate crisis, investing in oil drilling, pipelines, and fracking wells that cause global warming. The large banks—Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and CitiBank— are the worst violators. What about smaller banks? What can we do?

Ingrid Geis, from the 350 Mass Stop & Steer the Money Working Group which studies this issue, will share her suggestions in a 20-minute presentation and then answer your questions. Ingrid will discuss how to identify which banks are "dirty" and which are not, and tell us what we can do as individual consumers and as organized groups of citizens. 

Join us online. The Zoom Meeting will be open on Thursday March 30 at 7:00 pm, for greetings and comments about 350 Mass and the Greater Franklin Node. The presentation about banks will start at 7:30 PM.
Meeting ID: 835 6847 9671   Passcode: 350ma
Please see and share the attached flyer. This meeting is open to the entire community.
You can also view the flyer online here.
