Bankrolling the Climate Crisis with PA IPL & JEA

This meeting, recorded Wednesday, January 18, 2023, is part of PA IPL’s ongoing partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance (JEA).

TOPIC:
Bankrolling the Climate Crisis: the role the big US banks play in financing the fossil-free industry

SPEAKERS:
Ben Cushing, Director of Sierra Club‘s national Fossil-Free Finance Campaign
Others from Sierra Club

As long as the major US banks and other asset managers like Vanguard and BlackRock finance fossil fuel investments, these industries will continue drilling, shipping, and burning CO2 and methane. Yet concerned Americans can take steps to stop this funding by moving their own funds, pressuring their retirement fund managers to divest, and pressuring our religious institutions to divest. The time for will be discussion after and the presentation and calls for action.


JEA provides ongoing training and templates for monthly letter writing campaigns to local, state, and federal officials. The meetings provide a template, information, and guidance for all those who are interested in amplifying the message of Climate Justice.

Once you learn how easy Jewish Earth Alliance makes it, through their background information and template letter, for everyone to write letters to their federal officials, we hope you will write to your members of Congress now and for the next few months.
