Our member Rainforest Action Network is joining with thousands of friends and allies on the internet to send a message to JP Morgan Chase to stop financing mountaintop removal coal mining!  JP Morgan Chase is the biggest U.S. financier of mountaintop removal coal mining, the practice of blowing apart mountain peaks to access coal below the surface.

Rainforest Action Network has repeatedly asked Chase to quit funding mountaintop removal. Chase has refused.

In response, RAN has decided to PUT CHASE ON THE RUN with a social media day of action.

This Thursday, DirtyMoney.org will reveal a list of simple actions people can take online, letting Chase know that America is aware of the bank's involvement in destroying Appalachia. Participants will have a choice of actions to take on a variety of social networks, including Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.

RAN will also be joining forces with top bloggers, social media partners, and allied organizations from around the nation to ensure Chase reevaluates its funding of mountaintop removal coal mining.

To join the action, sign up at www.ran.org/chase.
