US Bank based in Minneapolis takes pride in raising the ethical bar in finance, purporting to put companies through strict due diligence before entering into financing. In April 2017, CEO Andrew Cecere claimed US Bank doesn’t finance the construction of oil or natural gas pipelines, yet the bank is profitably entangled with notorious human and environmental rights violator Energy Transfer Partners (ETP).


We are asking folks nationwide to Call-In and Demand Divestment from ETP supporting the efforts Water Protectors, activists, organizers, and indigenous leaders gathering and collaborating on the ground in Minneapolis, MN this week. As Super Bowl spotlight turns to US Bank Stadium, we’re making sure the world knows that US Bank funds companies that harm humanity and our Mother Earth.


Encourage your network of supporters and friends to join us on February 8th and 9th to raise our voices in solidarity with hundreds of others! Supporters nationwide can make an impact by calling US Bank Headquarters to Demand US Bank Keep Its Promise: Divest from ETP.


Everyone can and should call, but please encourage organizers you know in these states to share and push their network to call in.

 

DEMAND US BANK KEEP ITS PROMISE: DIVEST FROM ETP! February 1st - 2nd, 9am-5pm CT

CALL Reba Dominski, Chief of Corporate Social Responsibility,  612.303.0738  or

Script:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a US Bank Customer  OR

HI, my name is [NAME] and I’m an American consumer  in [CITY, STATE].


  • "US Bank is financing illegal blockages, massive silting, and irreparable harm to Louisiana’s wetlands.”
  • “US Bank funds some of the nation’s most gruesome environmental actors - DAPL/Bayou Bridge Pipeline, Rover Pipeline and Mariner East 2 Pipeline are all proven hazardous to our water quality and way of life.”
  • "US Bank is endangering indigenous rights by aiding in the pollution of drinking water for the Houma nation."
  • "US Bank is risking the livelihood of crawfishermen and fishermen who rely on the Atchafalaya Basin as a vital resource by funding the Bayou Bridge Pipeline."


I'm calling to urge US Bank end its financial relations with Energy Transfer Partners and uphold its promise to stop financing the construction of oil and gas pipelines.


Thank you for your time and attention.
