4/24/18 Rigged Economy March

Social Media Toolkit

It’s time to clean house at America’s worst bank. Wells Fargo is at the center of America’s worst consumer abuses. They need to divest from harmful industries, stop predatory and discriminatory lending, and start putting people and planet first. Instead, Wells Fargo rigged the economy and put their executives and shareholders first. Poor, working class, and black and brown communities have no choice but to call for Wells Fargo to demand change. The Wells Fargo board of directors and CEO have presided over an endless stream of scandals. Most recently, they opened 3.5 million accounts in customers’ names without telling them, got caught, and then fired the workers.

On Tuesday, April 24th, we are taking our demands to Wells Fargo’s annual meeting of stockholders and their Home Mortgage Headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa. Our demand: It’s time to clean house at America’s worst bank. Click here for more information about the action.
