What is happening at Standing Rock is a violation of human rights and environmental safe guards. Financial institutions have a duty to do their due diligence when investing and ensure they are not causing destruction and harm.
Costco recently transferred all its member credit cards to Citibank, one of the banks helping fund the Dakota Access Pipeline. We are asking Costco to pressure their partner Citibank to stop funding the DAPL and withdraw from this project. The Dakota Access Pipeline project by Energy Transfer is violating the United States' U.N. agreement on the treatment of Indigenous People, violating civil rights to peaceably protest, and threatening millions of citizens' right to clean water and air. We must all stand together as individuals and businesses to oppose this project. Thank you.
