11/18: The Climate Pod Live in Chicago!
The Climate Pod, a weekly podcast, is taping a live show in Chicago, and Rising Tide Chicago will be a featured panelist alongside 350 Chicago, Sunrise Chicago, Extinction Rebellion Chicago and many more.
Tickets are $10. The event is a fundraiser for Friends of the Chicago River. This event is 18+.
What happens when you use your Chase credit card (including Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, Amazon Prime, and others)?
A percentage of the money you spend goes to JPMorgan Chase to be invested in expansion of the fossil fuel industry.
Let’s tell Chase: We’ll go elsewhere! Sign up here: https://actionnetwork.org/events/cutthechasechallenge-social-media-storm/
In the #CutTheChaseChallenge, we’ll cut up our Chase credit cards on video, with the help of a friend or pet, pledging to use a different card instead. Then we’ll post the videos on social media to demand that the No. 1 funder of fossil fuels worldwide, JPMorgan Chase, divest from fossil fuels by 2030.
We’ll all prepare our videos in advance (don’t worry, we’ll send detailed instructions), and then post them on social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) on November 22 at exactly 12:00 pm Eastern time (US), UTC-04:00. You can participate from anywhere.
We’re rolling this out in time for Black Friday, just when banks want us using their credit cards.
Note: In order to protect your credit score, you have options such as leaving the credit card account open and simply not using it any more.
Please RSVP “yes,” “maybe,” or “no” to receive more information: https://actionnetwork.org/events/cutthechasechallenge-social-media-storm/
