Group made up of people over 60 to focus on protesting and divesting from banks that invest in new fossil fuel projects and democracy
Third Act is a national organization that was started about a year ago by Bill McKibben aiming at people over 60 who have time, professional expertise, and money. Third Act Virginia is an active working group that focuses, by protests and letters on four main banks that invest billions in new fossil fuel projects (Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, and Citibank). We also rally in solidarity with other environmental, voting rights, and social justice groups.
