Dear MoveOn member,
I'm Alexis Goldstein, a MoveOn member in Washington, D.C., and I started a petition to the CEOs of nine major Wall Street banks, which says:
Every major Wall Street bank has staff associations devoted to communities of color, religious groups, and LGBTQ people. Yet the big U.S. banks have been silent now that Trump has named both a white nationalist (Steve Bannon) and an anti-Muslim bigot (Michael Flynn) to his cabinet.
Last week, the ranking members of the House Financial Services and Senate Banking committees, Rep. Maxine Waters and Sen. Sherrod Brown, were joined by Rep. Keith Ellison and Sen. Elizabeth Warren in a letter to financial services leaders, demanding that they condemn the appointment of Steve Bannon to Donald Trump's administration. They asked the industry, "What message will it send to your customers and employees if you stay silent?"1
We agree. Wall Street must show its employees and its customers that the industry will not remain silent in the face of bigotry, prejudice, and white nationalism.
