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.
We did it! Hundreds of us participated in the Vanguard's Big Climate Problem Walk, with so many more supporting from afar. We followed the money from the industries polluting communities along the Delaware River to Vanguard's global headquarters, with powerful actions along the way.
You're invited to join us as we gather in person to celebrate and continue strengthening the relationships that grew on the walk. The event is outdoors so masks are not required, but they are encouraged for times when it's hard to keep socially distant.
On Wednesday, June 1, at the Comcast Plaza in Center City, EQAT will take action to raise awareness of Vanguard’s contribution to climate destruction and its poor stewardship of the future.
Why at Comcast, you ask? Comcast’s default retirement fund is with Vanguard – a policy that is being challenged that day during the Comcast annual shareholder meeting. And Vanguard is also Comcast's largest investor, giving it huge voting power at that very same shareholder meeting.
Through speeches and songs and by handing out flyers, we'll raise awareness among Comcast employees that the Vanguard retirement funds their employer offers as a default are threatening their futures, not protecting them. And we'll send Vanguard a message that we’re not just in Malvern anymore, we’re in Center City, too.
Please gather at Love Park at 11:45 am. From there, we'll march to Comcast's headquarters together.
This meeting will be held via an online platform. Please RSVP below for the link to join the meeting.
Our monthly gathering to share and learn about EQAT's campaign to get Vanguard to invest for our climate and our communities. Everyone is welcome.
