Digital Takeover of Chase Bank branches. Sign up here:   bit.ly/ChaseTakeover.

Chase is the worst bank by far for financing the fossil fuel industry. Our friends at 350PDX have an ingenious plan for a digital takeover of Chase branches around the country. On April 23 we’ll leave reviews on Yelp, Google, etc. informing people of the extent to which Chase funds climate chaos.

Sign up to get the toolkit with everything you need to know. Let’s flood Chase branches in Salem with comments.


FRIDAY APRIL 24 – VOTE! earthdaylive2020.org

A nationwide political action and youth voter registration day. We need leaders who will address this existential threat, and for this to happen, we need people to show up at the polls this year – in Oregon’s May primary and the November General Election.
