Want a better world? Then #BankExit and Divest!

UPDATED 9:32pm EST 12.15.2017

Big banks invest in everything that harms us…
war, private prisons, fossil fuels, everything bad.
Move your money and investments to a local credit union,
they are fully insured, they typically have lower fees, higher interest rates
and are more apt to invest in local businesses!
Go to http://www.culookup.com/ to find a credit union plus you can
download, print on regular printer paper and hand out cards with
info and the link to get others aware also! It’s free, just go to

#BankExit and make this a better world!

And along with your money, try to get your school, city, state, company, anyone and everyone to divest from what harms us!!!
