The DCReInvest coalition and Metro DC DSA ANC Initiative is building public pressure on the DC City Council to divest from Wells Fargo and reinvest in DC communities.
The Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) Initiative is currently calling on our elected leaders to support divestment from Wells Fargo – and urge the Council to do the same. Our goal is simple: to have ANC's all over the city pass a resolution in support of the District divesting its funds from the dishonest, discriminatory and environmentally destructive private bank Wells Fargo. So far, 8 ANCs in the District have passed a resolution urging the Council to divest from Wells Fargo! It’s important that we keep this momentum going and add more ANCs to the list.
Please join us at our next meeting and learn how you can get involved in the campaign!

Where: Lamond-Riggs Neighborhood Library, 5401 South Dakota Ave NE, Washington, DC 20011 (Meeting Room 1)
If you plan to attend, please let me know and RSVP by filling out this form.
Can’t attend the meeting but still want to get involved? No worries! Fill out this form and we will be in touch with you on getting involved in the campaign!
Here are some ways we would like you to get involved:
Want to be an advocate for divestment in your local community? Great! We are looking for people in the DC community to show up at their local ANC meeting and give a quick, no pressure presentation to the commissioners. We also need folks to engage with their local commissioners by sending quick emails, speaking with them at ANC monthly meetings, or writing them personal notes asking them to support the proposed ANC resolution.
- Have some extra time and want to help us organize for the ANC Campaign? Awesome! We are also recruiting people to get involved in our organizing and planning working group.
We forward to seeing you there!
