Concetta Ferrell, Xray technologist and San Jose Stands with Standing Rock organizer

Concetta recently divested money from her account at JP Morgan Chase Bank. Chase Bank is one of 17 financial institutions that fund the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). There has been a growing campaign for customers to divest from these banks that support funding the pipelines.

“It’s time for people to come together and act. Find a way to help make things better. It’s time to bring light to the racism and colonization which helped shape our nation. It’s time for real change and people are starting to wake up. I want to help people wake up. Stand up for what we believe in. I feel like the Standing Rock movement is helping me find my voice.”
