Did you know that climate change poses a hidden threat to your investments, 401(k) accounts, and pensions?
We’re all told that being financially responsible means investing in stocks and bonds, and saving for retirement. Here at Stop the Money Pipeline we also consider saving the planet to be saving for our futures.
Unfortunately, if the world goes up in flames, our 401(k)s won’t help us.
And what’s worse is that right now, we don’t have information about public companies’ vulnerability to climate change, their current greenhouse gas emissions, and whether they will make good on their public climate commitments.
Join us on Thursday, May 12th at 4pm PT / 7pm ET on Zoom to learn about how we can advocate for better protections for our savings and planet. (Live Spanish & ASL interpretation provided)
Public companies — like Wall Street and fossil fuel firms — want to keep us in the dark about their contributions to climate chaos, environmental racism, and abuse of Indigenous rights. While these companies make up retirement plans, pensions, or individuals’ investments, their business practices are contributing to the climate crisis and putting everyone’s finances — and our planet — at risk!
We’ll be joined by a lineup of expert speakers:
- Jessica Garcia, Climate Finance Policy Analyst, Americans for Financial Reform (AFR)
- Erika Thi Patterson, Campaign Director, Action Center on Race and the Economy (ACRE)
- Moira Birss, Climate and Finance Director, Amazon Watch
This is the fourth of a 5-part Toxic Money digital training series to expose financial institutions fueling the climate crisis, and organize collective action to rein them in — hosted by us and Action Center on Race & the Economy, Public Citizen, Positive Money US, and Americans for Financial Reform.
We hope you will join us on Zoom on Thursday, May 12th at 4pm PT / 7pm ET!
