Stop the Money Pipeline

Stop the Money Pipeline (STMP) Workgroup is 350Brooklyn’s way to support the national Stop the Money Pipeline campaign.  The goal of the campaign is to get the financial industry--particularly JP Morgan Chase and BlackRock--to divest from the fossil fuel industry in order to force the industry to move from fossil fuels to renewables.

The STMP movement kicked off with a report from the Rainforest Action Network that showed that Chase Bank gave more money to the fossil fuel industry than any other bank in the world--over $268 billion since the Paris Agreement in 2016.  This report was followed up by an Op-Ed in the NYT by Bill McKibben and an action at a Chase Bank in Chicago where McKibben, Jane Fonda, and others were arrested.

STMP-BK aims to add to the pressure on Chase Bank, particularly CEO Jamie Dimon. We believe that we are in a unique position to do so, with so many progressive-minded people living so near the nerve-center of the bank. We believe that the financial sector is particularly susceptible to public pressure and that a small number of activists can have a large impact on their public image.  

We created an on-line open letter to CEO Jamie Dimon. We did a holiday-themed action at the Chase branch on 9th Street and 5th Avenue and plan to continue to expand these actions, and others, in the months to come.

The Stop the Money Pipeline Campaign is increasing the pressure on Chase Bank! On Saturdays in February and March, we are in front of a different Chase branch in Brooklyn (or two branches or three) with a big banner, a poster with a QR code that people can use to link to a letter to Jaime Dimon, and a letter for the branch manager. Just two people holding a six-foot-long banner for an hour. Very simple, very safe, but very visible.

Would you like to join us one Saturday morning for an hour? If you can, please email us at and we will send you directions!
