"You need to call & email these 3 Seattle City Councilmembers today (and tomorrow and next week). Seattle has a rare opportunity to make a serious impact on the Dakota Access Pipeline. This pipeline will not create long-term jobs; it deepens our addiction to oil, ruining our planet. Not to mention how flagrantly we will be violating treaties and the rights of millions of people. If the city divests from Wells Fargo, that's a 3 BILLION dollar cut. That cut goes deep.
All you need to tell them is that Seattle needs to put its money where its values are and that you support Council member Sawant's socially responsible banking ordinance. Here's what you can say when you call.
"I am calling to ask Council Member XX to ask them to vote YES on Council Bill 118883 to end the city's relationship with Wells Fargo, one of the major funding partners of the Dakota Access Pipeline."

***** CALL TO ACTION: Call Seattle City Council *****
After hundreds of us rallied to tell Wells Fargo to #DefundDAPL, our next focus is on the City Council. Next up, the City of Seattle needs to pass its socially responsible banking ordinance and sever ties with Wells Fargo.
The truth is Wells Fargo is so big that they aren't really going to miss even the $1+M we pulled from their accounts.
The City of Seattle, however, has a bank account of $3 billion. They will feel that. And this is the punishment Wells Fargo must feel for funding such an evil, abusive project as the Dakota Access Pipeline.
To help ensure Seattle stands with Standing Rock and severs ties with Wells Fargo, please take five minutes right now to call and email the key City Council members who will be voting on this within the next two weeks.
