At a recent charity event held by J.P. Morgan Chase in San Francisco, activists attempted to “take over” by protesting the financing of the oil and gas industry. When doing so, they wore and used products only made possible by the industry, industry insiders note.
Stop The Money Pipeline, a coalition of groups committed to stopping the flow of oil, claimed to take over “one of Chase’s largest events of the year to make it clear: world destroyers don’t get to have positive PR events.” They protested at a Chase Corporate Challenge, which organizes the world’s largest corporate running event.
The 3.5-mile-long race is held in 15 locations in eight countries to promote fitness and friendly competition. The beneficiary of the San Francisco race was Steph and Ayesha Curry’s “Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation,” which seeks to end childhood hunger and ensure students have access to a quality education and safe places to play.
