"We’ve reached our goal of getting 50,000 signatures on our petition to JPMorgan Chase, calling on the bank to stop funding the expansion of tar sands pipelines and environmental destruction. But I know we can rally more people to take a stand. So, we’ve upped our goal to 75,000 signatures.
"Last week JPMorgan Chase’s CEO Jamie Dimon and many others agreed to disband Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum in disagreement with Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville. While Dimon might not be on Trump’s council anymore, he’s still doing Trump’s bidding by funding destructive tar sands pipelines. As the sixth-largest bank in the world — and one that publicly supported the Paris Climate Agreement — JPMorgan Chase and Dimon have a responsibility to cut ties to this climate and human rights disaster, keep their word on Indigenous rights, and be consistent with the moral stand Dimon took last week.
"Tell JPMorgan Chase and Jamie Dimon we will hold them accountable and demand that they cut ties to the tar sands oil pipelines.
"Our efforts in pressuring big banks to pull their funding from pipelines is working. For example, ING formally announced it will not be financing tar sands oil pipeline projects, including Keystone XL, after it received a letter sent by 20 Indigenous and environmental groups asking the bank to refrain from financing Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. It’s clear that large banks are beginning to be wary of the risks associated with dirty tar sands oil — we must keep raising our voices. Please help us reach our goal of 75,000 signatures and keep up the pressure on JPMorgan Chase."
