    Money talks. Well’s Fargo chose a harmful path for short-term gain (fraudulent accounts, DAPL, predatory lending and private prisons). They didn’t have to. I fully support divestment from Wells Fargo because that’s the most direct path to a better economy for the long term. Seek the best Return on Investment (ROI) for our community from the money we spend: lending without discrimination, alternatives to fossil fuels and alternatives to prison. This really doesn’t need to be “too complex” or “time-consuming.” After all, what’s so funny about peace, love and fiscal responsibility?
