Our Lobby Day at LA City Hall today was a success! Incredible day with an incredible group of dedicated people! The Divest LA team, along with allied organizations #RedEarthDefense, #AIMSoCAL, #ACCE, and #CommitteeforBetterBanks, met with city council offices including the office of Mayor Eric Garcetti to discuss Los Angeles’ divestment from Wells Fargo. .
We took the opportunity today to drop off copies of our 1,200-page Change.org petition with over 38,500 signatures and counting! The Divest LA movement has gained momentum nationwide!
With 38K strong supporting our efforts to #DivestLA, it’s time for Los Angeles City Council to do the right thing, end the city’s financial ties with Wells Fargo and move our public funds into an ethical banking institution!
