VERMONTERS – LET’S DO OUR PART
IN THE MOVEMENT TO STOP CLIMATE CATASTROPHE
Money Divested Internationally
Money Being Divested by Vermonters
DIVEST THE GLOBE!
If you have a financial relationship (accounts, loans, credit cards) with one of these banks that funds the fossil fuel industry and you would like to divest, first set up a new account in a credit union that does not invest in fossil fuel extraction. This guide can help you make a smooth transition.
Then, go to your bank and make a #BankExit by publicly closing your account. Make sure to submit a letter to management explaining that you don’t want to finance an institution that profits from human rights abuses and puts our water at risk.
