Rigged Economy March at Wells Fargo’s shareholders’ meeting
Join us on Tuesday, April 24 in Des Moines to confront Wells Fargo at their annual shareholder meeting and demand they put People and our Planet before corporate greed. RSVP and get more details here.
Wells Fargo’s abusive actions have hurt millions of people – everyone from students and veterans to homeowners in our community.
- Wells Fargo is the official bank of the NRA
- Wells Fargo finances private prison and detention center giants GEO Group and CoreCivic
- Wells Fargo opened 3,500,000 sham accounts without customer authorization and defraud account holders over and over again
Or, as Saqib Bhatti, director of the Refund America Project, reminds us: Wells Fargo was “one of the leading banks when it came to mortgage discrimination, really targeting communities of color with predatory mortgages. In fact, workers from within the bank have come forth and said that within Wells Fargo, they referred to subprime mortgages as “ghetto loans,” and said that they were intended for “mud people.” This is a type of culture that you had within Wells Fargo. […] What we found is, time and again, it’s black and Latino communities that are targeted for the worst of Wells Fargo’s racist practices.”
Wells Fargo rakes in profits while our communities suffer.
Enough is enough. They’ve chosen to hold this national meeting in Des Moines, hoping to escape the protests that have dogged the event in recent years. We’ll converge on their annual shareholder meeting in downtown Des Moines and demand they put People and Planet first.
We’ll kick off this powerful day of action at 8:30am. RSVP and get more details here.
