Get ready. After a massive day of 99% Power actions on Tax Day from coast to coast, we are quickly heading into the busiest weeks of shareholder season.
On April 24th thousands of clergy, community, student, and labor leaders, environmental activists, and many more will converge on Wells Fargo's shareholder meeting in San Francisco. We'll demand that Wells Fargo commits to principal reduction for homeowners; stops investing in private prisons, payday lenders, and dirty energy; pays its fair share in taxes; and stops buying our democracy.
After making these demands, The 99% Power coalition will encourage its members to move our money out of Wells Fargo immediately following the shareholder meeting. We'll continue to move our money until the mega-bank meets the demands of the 99%.
When Bank of America's shareholder meeting is held in Charlotte on May 9th, The 99% Power will be there to take similar action. Like the Wells Fargo meeting, The 99% Power coalition will encourage its members to move our money out of Bank of America until the bank meets our demands.
We'll continue to Move Our Money throughout the month of May as a show of the financial power of The 99% vs the biggest Wall Street banks in the country. While we're focused on Wells Fargo and Chase because of the major action at their shareholder meetings, anybody with a big bank account can participate in Move Our Money.
