NEXT WEEK: Fossil Free Federal Reserve campaign to take action for the climate at this year’s Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium

Jackson Hole, WY — This week, President Biden has signed historic climate legislation. With momentum on our side, we are pushing for more action from our government’s key institutions to stop investments in fossil fuels. The Fossil Free Federal Reserve campaign and local climate groups are coming to Jackson Hole to tell leaders at the Economic Policy Symposium that finance policy and the Fed have to do more to protect the climate, recognizing the critical risk fossil fuel investments pose to our economy, and get on board with the imperative to keep warming under 1.5 degrees.

Now, communities are gearing up for action at next week’s Economic Policy Symposium, where global financial decision-makers — including current Fed Chair Jerome Powell — are expected to be in attendance. Organizers are demanding the Fed end fossil fuel finance and incorporate climate risk into its policies.
