Hello to all,
I am attaching copies of four letters I am sending off to Citibank, Costco Corporation, Wells Fargo Corporation, and Congressional Representative Jared Huffman. The first three relate to urging these financial organizations to divest from dirty fossil fuel companies, and the last asks Rep Huffman to follow up on his earlier actions to influence Washington to pay attention to the ongoing issues at Standing Rock.
I want to acknowledge the “ghost writer” who posted an earlier letter in an email, and whose elegant and pointed language I borrowed from. I couldn’t find the author of that earlier letter, and hope I can safely assume it was OK to use some of his/her phrasing as I invite anyone else to use anything you see in any of these letters. Feel free to pass them on to anyone interested.
