Events

General meetings and county meetings are held virtually for now. EQAT leadership continues to gather feedback and evaluate this decision, based on changing circumstances. For in-person actions, we ask participants to wear masks. And, while we understand that some people are unable to get vaccinated, EQAT expects that those who are able will be vaccinated in order to participate in in-person activities. 

Please contact us with any questions.

"Vanguard, Where's The Plan?" Action

Saturday, February 19, 2022 at 12:00 PM
Vanguard headquarters

Vanguard is a leading investor in climate destruction. Last year, the company signed the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, but it still has not released any plan for how it will get its investments on track to net zero emissions. We need bold action from Vanguard now -- we have no time to lose for the climate and for our futures. 

Please join us at Vanguard's doorstep to ask, "You made a pledge, but where's the plan?" Time and other details to be confirmed! RSVP below to receive more information.

Vanguard's Big Climate Problem Walk

Monday, April 18, 2022 at 12:00 AM through April 23, 2022

We hope you'll join us for Vanguard's Big Climate Problem Walk from Monday, April 18 to Friday, April 22 (Earth Day)! 

One of the biggest asset managers in the world, Vanguard's business strategy makes it a major driver of climate destruction. It is the largest global investor in coal and one of the world's two biggest investors in oil and gas. Whether we are elders concerned about making our own savings last, people trying to juggle the demands of work and family, or students who know their futures are in jeopardy, we all desperately need Vanguard to change course. They could vote for climate-friendly shareholder resolutions in the short run, and over time, move their investments out of fossil fuel and forest-destroying companies, if those firms don't come up with a plan to transition out of climate destruction. With over $8 trillion under management, Vanguard could be a leader instead of a laggard.

That is why we are walking to Vanguard's southeastern Pennsylvania headquarters! Starting at the industrial banks of the Delaware River, our emerging route includes sites of environmental injustice and climate destruction, as well as opportunities for intergenerational training in nonviolent direct action and for reaching out to Vanguard customers. Because this is happening during Passover, we are partnering with the Exodus Alliance to hold a special interfaith action at a Chase Bank, highlighting the powerful symbols of the Passover story and the role of Chase and Vanguard (the biggest investor in Chase) as "Climate pharaohs" of our time. We will conclude with a powerful action at Vanguard's global headquarters in Malvern, PA on Earth Day. 

To sign up for any or all of the walk, please fill out the form at this link: https://forms.gle/JePknSeJ9YKaEzuF7 Thank you!
