Freedom from Fossil Fuels — an Earth Day and Passover celebration!
April 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Passover is a celebration of freedom. The holiday carries many lessons today as we face the climate crisis, working to free ourselves from the destruction of the fossil fuel economy and create a world where everyone can thrive.
On Earth Day, April 22, 2022, the last day of Passover, Jews and Allies in Eugene, Oregon will gather in front of Chase Bank, the world’s largest banker of fossil fuels and one of the top financiers of Tar Sands oil, Arctic oil and gas, and fracking. We will publicly proclaim today’s fossil-fueled plagues, and lift up matzah as a symbol of urgency, calling on Chase Bank to “move their dough”.
We mourn the war in Ukraine and the loss of life, and we recognize how fossil fuels are funding the invasion of Ukraine (and how renewable energy can make us all safer). We will call on banks and asset managers to stop their investments not just in Russian oil and gas but in all fossil fuels.
