People, let’s us take a moment and take a step back and let’s take this one day at a time. Let’s not get too overwhelmed with this, new for some, approach towards social progression and social justice. In your communities you should already know the sociably responsible businesses and the not so sociably ones. You probably have already decided where to shop or not shop based on how you have or your family and friends been treated in your community and not shopping at businesses based on their political or social views. That is your local list. Get with others in your community and compare your lists and post them for others. A quick Google search of the banks that are supporting the building of the pipeline are Bank of America, HSBC, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase. You may not agree with all the companies that will be on the boycott list, but you should still boycott them for the greater good of humanity and social progression. Not everyone who participated in the Montgomery Bus Boycott wanted to walk to work, but they did it for the cause.
