Background:

US Bank based in Minneapolis takes pride in raising the ethical bar in finance, purporting to put companies through strict due diligence before entering into financing. In April 2017, CEO Andrew Cecere claimed US Bank doesn’t finance the construction of oil or natural gas pipelines, yet the bank is profitably entangled with notorious human and environmental rights violator Energy Transfer Partners (ETP).

Encourage your network of supporters and friends to join us on February 8th and 9th to raise our voices in solidarity with hundreds of others! Supporters nationwide can make an impact by calling US Bank Headquarters to Demand US Bank Keep Its Promise: Divest from ETP.

Everyone can and should call, but please encourage organizers you know in these states to share and push their network to call in. Check out our Action Toolkit!
