On Thursday Jan 26th at 2pm, join Portland Rising Tide for Round 3 to DEFUND DAPL! We are spending a day getting as many Portlanders as possible to take their money out of banks that fund DAPL. There will be cocoa, talking to strangers, and the merry jingle of the sounds of oil corporation bankruptcy.
Here’s the Plan:
We’ll meet up at the Rising Tide office, go over the strategy and then at 2:30 we will leave to fan out to as many different banks that fund DAPL as possible. Armed with tastefully designed “move your money” info packets (provided at the office), we will stand outside the banks, or on busy intersections or parks, in pairs or small groups and ask folks banking there to move their money to a credit union or local bank that doesn’t fund fossil fuels. The goal is to have as many personal conversations with folks as possible and leave with new friends! After banks close we’ll meet at The Standard Bar (on 22nd & Burnside) for a tasty beverage and a debrief.
What to Bring:
-Warm clothes, snacks and water.
-Anything else you need to be comfortable standing outside for a few hours.
-A buddy if you’ve got one!
-Treats to entice strangers to talk to you (optional)
-A sign related to NODAPL (optional)
-Musical instrument (optional)
If you can’t join at 2, check back here and we will post places for people to join in throughout the afternoon.
