Pack the room and rally to Divest DC from Wells Fargo!
It’s time to get D.C. to take its money out of banks that fund pipelines and private prisons and engage in racist lending practices — and instead invest in our communities. The first step: divest D.C. from Wells Fargo!
D.C. ReInvest is a diverse coalition of D.C.-based grassroots groups working to get this done. Now, we are showing up to pack the room at the DC Council’s CFO Oversight Hearing. On April 18th, the DC Chief Financial Officer will be called to testify before the Finance Committee on the work they’ve done over the past year, including around the feasibility of a #BankExit.
We will be first rally outside the Wilson Building to hear from community leaders on why they support divestment, and why they fight for the city to invest in its own community. Then, we’ll head inside to pack the room and each testify demanding the CFO and Council support the Wells Fargo divestment resolution!
Help us pack the room, gather a crowd outside, and convince our elected officials that divesting from Wells Fargo and reinvesting in our communities is the right move for DC!
