When members of Northshore UCC discovered that their church’s bank helped finance the Dakota Access Pipeline, they decided it was time to move the church’s money elsewhere. The church became the first religious institution in the country to join the Mazaka Talks Boycott, a Native-led effort calling for a boycott the 64 banks funding new tar sands pipelines and the Dakota Access Pipeline. Northshore UCC created a step-by-step guide for other churches who want to move their money.
