About this event:

Created by laurie

Eugene City Council
Harris Hall
125 E. 8th Avenue

On October 23rd, representatives from ninety-two of the world’s largest banks will meet in São Paolo, Brazil to discuss policies on the climate and Indigenous People’s rights to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent  (FPIC).

Join us at Eugene City Council on Monday, 10/23, to add our voices to Divest the Globe events worldwide. Sign up to testify at 7:00 pm. Public Forum begins at 7:30 pm.

Speak out/stand up for the City of Eugene to divest from USBank (fossil fuel financier) and switch to a regional, more values-aligned banking institution (human rights & renewable energy).

REI co-op members can sign petitions to demand REI do the same with its bank accounts and USBank credit card services.
