The City of Oakland
This is important because if we can do this in Seattle, and we can do this here, then we can do this everywhere! We the people of Oakland formally request that Mayor Libby Schaaf and the city of Oakland, CA divest our money from banks that have supported the Dakota Access Pipeline. No matter where you're from, your signature can make a difference and just like in Seattle we can see this movement take the nation. It's time to put our money where our mouth is. If we reinvest these funds into local credit unions not only will this support the health of the Oakland economy, we as a city will also be taking an important stand against one of the greatest dangers of our time.
Stopping the pipeline will protect millions of people who depend on the water reserve surrounding Standing Rock. It also makes a definitive statement to the world that we no longer need to rely on fossil fuels, that we can direct our attention to clean energy creating thousands upon thousands of new jobs, and that we the people have the power to do whats right and protect the environmental resources that we depend on for our very lives.
Stand with Standing Rock.
