#FossilFreeFed National Day of Action

Friday, October 29

On Friday, October 29, climate activists around the country are mobilizing to demand that the Federal Reserve System put a halt to all fossil fuel financing in the US! We’re calling for strong climate leadership in the Fed; lending policy that strictly aligns with and supports all US commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement; and active support for funding to low-income, BIPOC, and other frontline communities hit hardest by the climate crisis.

Madison’s closest Federal Reserve Bank is in downtown Chicago, so on October 29 we’re going to be traveling together to support the action there (co-hosted by 350 Chicago and Rising Tide Chicago). We’ll carpool to downtown Chicago from Madison, likely leaving Madison no later than 11:00 AM. The Chicago event is from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, and then we’ll return to Madison in time for dinner.

Are you interested in joining us? Or if you can’t join us that day, are you interested in being involved in other actions targeting the Fed? If so, sign up here or email Emily at emily.park@350madison.org!

WHAT: #FossilFreeFed National Day of Action
WHEN: Friday, October 29 (likely leaving Madison late morning and returning early evening)

Weekly Actionars Are Back!

“What is an Actionar?” you might ask. It’s a remote meeting in which the main focus is taking action for climate justice – Together!

These meetings will begin at 7 pm on Tuesdays and will wrap up by 8 pm. They’ll include tips for effectively communicating with the decision makers who have the power to stop fossil fuel developments that are threatening our survival.

You’ll want to show up with either pen and paper or a phone with text messaging capability. In most of the actionars, we will spend time crafting and sending messages to President Biden urging him to Stop the Money Pipeline, that steady stream of loan money flowing into the bank accounts of fossil fuel companies. Biden has taken some steps to disrupt the Money Pipeline, but we need him to do more.

With the Glasgow climate talks fast approaching, now is the time to make the drumbeat for climate justice steady and relentless. So Jump In And Join The Next Actionar. Coming soon to a screen near you.

WHAT:  350 Madison Divest & Defund Actionars!
WHEN: 7:00 pm Tuesday, September 21 (& every Tuesday until November 2)
