Wednesday May 20 | 1:00 pm E/10:00 am P | People’s Assembly on BlackRock

Why a People’s Assembly? Amidst shelter in place orders due to the pandemic, companies are moving their Annual General Meetings (AGMs) for shareholders online.

AGM’s are the one time in the financial year when communities could speak to senior executives and hold them accountable for the impacts of their businesses.

This year community and Indigenous leaders can’t be there to speak directly to leadership and in many cases we’re seeing digital platforms used to silence or sideline questions.

That’s why we’re organizing this People’s Assembly on BlackRock. Help us ensure that these voices, questions, and demands are heard loud and clear by BlackRock.

Featuring:
Helena Gualinga, Indigenous environmental and human rights activist from the Kichwa Sarayaku community in Pastaza, Ecuador (Ecuadorian Amazon)

Wrays Perez, Indigenous Wampis leader from Peruvian Amazon

Eloy Terena, human rights lawyer from the indigenous Terena peoples of Ibague, Brazil.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Rhode Island

Representative Jesús G. “Chuy” García, Illinois 4th District

Bill McKibben, writer and climate activist, co-founder 350 dot org
