Don’t Bank on Coal 11/16/07


Action: Nov. 16 – Day of Action Against Coal Finance

coalAs part of Co-op America’s ongoing efforts to say “no” to coal, we’re pleased to join with our allies at Rainforest Action Network, Coal River Mountain Watch, Appalachian Voices, and others with the launch of this day of action against coal finance.

On Nov. 16, green energy advocates around the country will take action to convince two of the largest financiers of new coal plants, Bank of America and Citibank) that dirty, outdated coal-fired electricity should not be part of our energy future.

Use our resources to prepare for action!  Actions that day include talking to managers at local bank branches about why coal is too dirty, cancelling Citi or Bank of America accounts, and telling them why (and shifting the funds to community investing), or leafleting in front of bank locations. Use our sample letter to tell your bank to stop financing coal.
