” love much, this work is real.” ~Scott Douglas, Greater Birmingham Ministries

Bank of America is:

• #1 forecloser of homes in the US,
• #1 funder of the US coal industry,
• Job killer by letting go of nearly 100,000 workers over the past several years,
• Bonus Buster paying its top five executives over $500 million in bonuses,
• Saddling students with a lifetime of debt, and
• Financing the war machine.

Bank of America, and its profits-over-people-and-planet business model, is drowning our democracy through
huge financial contributions to lobbyists that are serving the interests of the 1% and are participating in
corporate-funded groups like American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the Financial Services
Roundtable.

As a global community united for real economic and racial justice, it is time that BoA is held accountable,
invest in public needs and services, or face being broken up to achieve the justice we need. Whether you are a
community member, homeowner, worker or student, we need to come together to challenge corporate power
and create an economy and democracy that works for all of us.
