Next Steps After You Take The Pledge
Thank You for joining EQAT's Green Your Money Pledge dedicated to getting PNC Bank out of the business of financing mountaintop removal coal mining!
We start closing our accounts together on June 1st!
Save the Date. (Don't worry if you can not join us that day, we will organize other collective account closing actions over the following months.)
1) The first step is get yourself ready to close your account.
See the tips and resources that we have put totgether.
2) Very important: Let us know when you are all set and ready to go: GreenPNC@gmail.com This will help us be able to organize groups of folks to close their accounts together!
3) Spread the word and grow the movement.
