Bank of America is one of many banks funding the Dakota Access Pipeline, and I just cannot be a part of that... So I spent some time yesterday removing my money from Bank of America and depositing it into Sesloc Federal Credit Union. And, yes, I most definitely told BofA why, complete with a personal letter to the manager.
I hope you'll join me in taking your money out of the big banks funding this atrocity. Find a local Credit Union - invest there. Money talks. And if we all leave (can you imagine?!), the banks will eventually listen.
Here are some helpful tips to Close Your Accounts with Banks Funding DAPL:
1. Go to your bank and publicly close your account(s) with banks funding the pipeline: Wells Fargo, CitiBank, Bank of America, US Bank, PNC, SunTrust, Chase, BNP, RBC ... Click HERE for a complete list of all the banks funding the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Submit a letter to management stating your reason.
You can use this prepared letter.
2. Take a picture in front of the bank with your wallet in hand and a sign saying #DeFundDAPL - then post the photo to all your social media networks, use the hashtag #DeFundDAPL , @ tag your bank, and share these links with others, encouraging them to do the same.
3. Take your participation one step further by: contacting CEO's and/or organizing your own event at www.defundDAPL.com , and Join the Movement @ fb.com/DeFundDAPL
