On Earth Day, we asked you to tell the U.S. Export-Import Bank to stay far away from two proposed coal plants in Bangladesh. Yesterday, we brought your voice straight to the bank.

The U.S. Export-Import bank might finance two huge coal plants in Bangladesh — one dangerously close to the world’s largest mangrove forest, and one just outside the country’s densely-populated capital. We joined with allies in Washington, D.C. to deliver over 156,648 signatures right to the bank’s door, demanding that the U.S. Ex-Im bank reject these harmful projects.
You told the bank that you’re not okay with U.S. taxpayer dollars financing destructive coal plants in Bangladesh — and we made sure your voice was heard.
