Sign the Petition: Demand JPMorgan Chase Stop Funding the Climate Crisis
JPMorgan Chase continues to fund disastrous projects and companies that drive the climate crisis.
Our most recent report shows that JPMorgan Chase has increased its financing for coal mining by 21x in 2017 and increased funding to one of the dirtiest sources of energy on the planet, tar sands.
Tell JPMorgan Chase we will not stand for their destructive banking practices by signing the petition. Defund Tar Sands and Coal now!
