Divest St Pete Demonstration

  • Chase 3740 4th St N, Saint Petersburg, Florida 33704 (map)

Big Oil is destroying our country, just miles away the owners of the Sabal Trail pipeline just allowed the spill of bentonite into the Florida Everglades, bentonite is a deadly chemical that causes LUNG CANCER. Oil pipelines break every day, there have been over 8000 pipeline spills since 1986. It's time to stand up, to take action! The Tampa Bay Divestment Coalition is dedicated to protecting our lands, our water and our peoples. We are asking the Saint Petersburg city council to divest from its current financial partner JP Morgan Chase and implement social banking practices that prevent banks investing in devastating fossil fuel projects like Sabal Trail and Dakota Access pipeline. Join us in demanding JP Morgan Chase stop destroying our environment, poisoning our water and hurting our peoples.
