Call Chase CEO Jamie Dimon

Jamie Dimon’s Office Phone Number: 212-270-1111

Call script:

Hi – I am calling as more than forty Indigneous women, who live in communities impacted by the development of tar sands oil, recently sent an open letter to Mr. Dimon warning JPMorgan Chase away from financial support for the tar sands sector. We are demanding that Chase stop financing the Line 3 & KXL tar sands pipelines. I wanted to make sure that you had received that letter, and to encourage Mr. Dimon and his team to immediately set up a meeting with the women who sent the letter.

If you get a live person, here are some call tips:

  • Be polite. Our concerns are with the corporation, not with the person answering the phone.
  • Ask questions – i.e:
    • Do you know if Mr Dimon has received the letter?
    • Do you know if Mr. Dimon or other Chase executives are planning to meet with the women?
  • You may get immediately transferred to another department. If that happens, stay on the line and talk with whoever you get transferred to.
  • Ask for a follow-up
    • Ask for the name of the person you talk with, and ask for their email so that you can follow up with them personally
Brand Jam the companies propping up the Line 3 & KXL

Sign Petition to incoming President Biden: Help Stop Line 3!

Sign the Petition

Dear President-Elect Joe Biden,

In solidarity with thousands of supporters in the State of Minnesota, and around the country, I urge your administration to take bold, executive action to oppose the Line 3 tar sands pipeline.

The path of Enbridge’s proposed Line 3 pipeline cuts through pristine wetlands and watersheds in northern Minnesota, through the heart of Minnesota’s lake country and some of the largest and most productive wild rice beds in the world. Many Anishinaabe communities along the Minnesota portion of the proposed route are opposed to the project, making it in violation of the internationally recognized principle of Free, Prior, and Informed Consent for impacted Indigenous peoples.

The global scientific community agrees that we have less than 10 years to halt and cut global emissions or face catastrophic consequences to civilization. To put that in real economic terms — the State of Minnesota’s own analysis projects that Line 3 has a climate change cost to society of $287 billion in damage over 30 years. Thank you for taking the “No KXL pledge” and establishing a climate test for proposed pipelines. Will you demonstrate the same climate leadership on Line 3?

I support your declared leadership for a liveable climate and don’t want to see this pipeline undercut your promise to act in the face of the climate crisis. Your leadership is urgently needed to encourage MN Governor Tim Walz to reject the remaining permits and put a stay on construction activities to demonstrate respect for Indigenous rights, to protect our water, and to secure a livable climate for generations to come.

Kind regards,

Put social media pressure on the Minnesota Governor to #StopLine3

Sample tweets:

  • Hey @GovTimWalz @MNCommerce

    Line 3 would violate the treaty rights of Anishinaabe peoples and nations in its path — wild rice is a centerpiece of Anishinaabe culture, it grows in numerous watersheds Line 3 seeks to cross. #stopline3

  • Hey @GovTimWalz @MNCommerce

    Line 3 would contribute more to climate change than Minnesota’s entire economy. #stopline3

  • Hey @GovTimWalz @MNCommerce

    Line 3 would violate the treaty rights of Anishinaabe peoples and nations in its path — wild rice is a centerpiece of Anishinaabe culture, it grows in numerous watersheds Line 3 seeks to cross. #StopLine3

Call the Minnesota Governor and demand he #StopLine3

Governor Time Walz’s office: (651) 201-3400
Minnesota Department of Health: (651) 201-5000

Sample Script:

Hi, I’m [NAME], I’m calling from [PLACE], and I’m calling because I am extremely concerned about the possibility of construction on the Line 3 pipeline. The pipeline is still facing enormous legal challenges from tribal nations, advocacy groups, and the Minnesota Department of Commerce. I’m calling to urge the [name of office] to advocate for a stay against construction to protect the integrity of the process, and to protect communities in Minnesota from the dangerous spread of COVID. Thank you.”

Information you can add:

“All pipelines spill. Line 3 isn’t about safe transportation of a necessary product, it’s about expansion of a dying tar sands industry. Line 3 would contribute more to climate change than Minnesota’s entire economy. Minnesota’s own Department of Commerce found our local market does not need Line 3 oil. We need to decommission the old Line 3 and justly transition to a renewable, sustainable economy. Line 3 would violate the treaty rights of Anishinaabe peoples and nations in its path — wild rice is a centerpiece of Anishinaabe culture, it grows in numerous watersheds Line 3 seeks to cross.It’s well-past time to end the legacy of theft from and destruction of indigenous peoples and territories.” – Stop Line 3
