Join QEW Friends online to learn more about Third Act and the March 21 Day of Action. Third Act is building a community of experienced Americans over the age of sixty determined to change the world for the better. Together, they use life experience, skills and resources to build better tomorrow.

We will be talking about Banking on our Future Day of Action, planned for March 21. Groups are organizing to cut-up credit cards (symbolically or actually) in as many iconic places as we can imagine. (Maybe underwater on a dying coral reef, if you have diving skills, or against the backdrop of a fire-scarred forest, or alongside the remaining damage from Hurricane Ian). We also need lots of people outside and inside bank branches, especially out in suburbs across the country. Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Bank of America have picked 30,000 of the highest-traffic locations in the country for their offices and we want to make sure a wide sampling of them are visited that day.

Kathy Barnhart from Strawberry Creek Monthly Meeting is a volunteer with Third Act – she will be sharing with us the connection between finance and climate activism and how to get involved in your community.
