[Solidarity] J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge

Thursday, Jun 22

Join 350 Mass, Third Act, and Physicians for Social Responsibility as they disrupt the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in downtown Boston

The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is an annual series of 3.5-mile (5.63 km) road footraces with an intended focus on promoting fitness, camaraderie and teamwork to employees of local businesses and organizations. Teams are organized by company or organization, and the JPMorgan Chase Foundation celebrates the participants by making a donation to local charities.

The Union of Concerned Scientists reports that since 2016, JP Morgan Chase is at the top of the list of fossil fuel bankers, financing a staggering $434 billion from 2016 through 2022. Truly, Chase earns, while the earth burns.

The action plan is for participants to meet at the Leif Erikson statue on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall. Then, the group will distribute themselves along the racecourse with signs and then head for the finish line with banners and chants. Sign up to receive more information, suggestions for signs, and other roles!
