The Dakota Access pipeline is funded directly by 15 banks, many of which—Citibank, Wells Fargo—are ones you’ve probably heard of or do business with. In all, three dozen banks are contributing to the Bakken pipeline—of which Dakota Access is a section—by offering credit to either the project or to parent companies, according to research by the nonprofit Food & Water Watch.

Since the Defund DAPL campaign began last year, two large European banks—DNB and ING—withdrew project-level funding for the Dakota Access after a massive public direct action and consumer campaign.

Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, wrote an article for YES! suggesting that banks are more susceptible to public pressure than the oil and gas giants, which depend on bank loans and lines of credit to build their pipelines. “It’s probably sustained public pressure that will do the most good,” he wrote.

Wondering what to say to a bank executive?

Food & Water Watch researcher Hugh MacMillan suggests: “Ask these banks to clarify whether funds they are providing are being used, in any amount, to pay for the heavily militarized response to the Standing Rock Sioux, including the attack dogs, sound-cannon trucks, heavily armed officers.”

“People should also ask these institutions why they are sinking so much money into maximizing the amounts of oil and gas that can be brought to the surface and burned at a time when climate science is clear we have to maximize what we keep in the ground instead,” said MacMillan.

Here are names of banks and their CEOs —along with their most recent phone numbers and email addresses, according to YES! research and ceoemail.com. The first 17 banks (*) have directly funded the Dakota Access pipeline. The rest of these banks are offering open credit lines to its parent companies: Sunoco Logistics, Energy Transfer Partners, and Energy Transfer Equity.
