Emily Fuller: How to Contact the 17 Banks Funding the Dakota Access Pipeline

Here are CEO names, emails, and phone numbers—because banks have choices when it comes to what projects they give loans to.

The Dakota Access pipeline is funded directly by 17 banks, many of which—Citibank, Wells Fargo—are ones you’ve probably heard of or do business with.

Banks are more susceptible to public pressure than the oil and gas giants.

Researchers with the nonprofit Food & Water Watch found that 38 banking institutions are involved in funding the proposed Bakken pipeline, which would stretch from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. A section of this project is the Dakota Access pipeline, where the Standing Rock Sioux and thousands of allies have physically put themselves in the path of the pipeline to protect their reservation and a stretch of the Missouri River.

Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, recently wrote an article for YES! suggesting that banks are more susceptible to public pressure than the oil and gas giants, which depend on bank loans and lines of credit to build their pipelines. “It’s probably sustained public pressure that will do the most good,” he wrote.

Wondering what to say to a bank executive?

Food & Water Watch researcher Hugh MacMillan: “Ask these banks to clarify whether funds they are providing are being used, in any amount, to pay for the heavily militarized response to the Standing Rock Sioux, including the attack dogs, sound-cannon trucks, heavily armed officers, and even a crop duster spraying undetermined chemicals over the camp.

“People should also ask these institutions why they are sinking so much money into maximizing the amounts of oil and gas that can be brought to the surface and burned at a time when climate science is clear we have to maximize what we keep in the ground instead,” said MacMillan.

The organization’s deputy communications director, Seth Gladstone, suggests saying: “As a customer of your financial institution, I reject the notion of my money helping to support your investment in the Dakota Access pipeline, an inherently dangerous and unjust oil pipeline that threatens air and water quality in many states, and violates sacred lands of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. I urge you to give up your financial stake in the Dakota Access pipeline immediately.”

Here are names of CEOs and other bank executives of the banks directly funding the Dakota Access pipeline—along with their phone numbers and email addresses.

Ask these bank executives why they are sinking so much money into a dangerous pipeline that threatens drinking water and violates sacred tribal lands.

      Thanks, Mike, many of the email addresses have been discontinued because of the volume that they were receiving. I think that the banks have gotten a clear message that their customers don’t like their banks supporting DAPL.

    I have been a Wells customer since the day it set forth in Oregon. I recently raised th is issue with a customer care representative I got to through a phone number from a full page ad in The New York Times asking upset Wells customers to call to find out what they are doing after the recent scams. The customer care person had no knowledge that Wells was supporting DAPL. Using this article I have sent an email to the Board and the CEO outlining that it is time for Wells to do something good for the community — more than posting ads to call customer service in the NY Times — and withdraw from DAPL to support renewable energy sources. I said as a long-time customer I expected a personal response from the bank. Thank you for posting this.

    I’ll be writing to the other financial sources later today.
