#womensMARCHfl On March 17, we MARCH for the ENVIRONMENT!
At Women's March Florida, we promote environmental sustainability and believe that climate change is real. We pledge to protect and sustain the land, air, water, and creatures that share the Earth with us.
To put our money where our mouth is, today chapters across the state will join together in a day of action against the banks funding the Sabal Trail pipeline, specifically BANK OF AMERICA, to urge individuals to divest and defund pipelines across the country.
Bank of America is one of the top lenders of the destructive Sabal Trail Pipeline in Florida and the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. The banks funding these dangerous pipelines must understand that their careless investments put us all at risk. Through our actions today we hope to increase public awareness of why divestment is so incredibly important, and we hope to inspire many to join local credit unions.
Women’s March Florida believes that when it comes to climate change, Florida has more at stake than any other state. We need to stop destrutive pipelines and invest in solar now! 70% of the state voted in favor of solar energy in the last election. If Bank of America does not divest, we will.
Together with partners at Greenpeace Florida, ReThink Energy and a coalition of groups organized as state and local water protectors, we call upon our members across the state to protest Bank of America, and urge BoA customers to #divestFlorida and shut down their accounts.

You can divest on your own at any Bank of America branch (be sure to tell them WHY you are divesting!), or join a protest at one of these chapters:
