WHAT KINDS OF ACTIONS ARE MOST HELPFUL TO ORGANIZE? 

Groups such as Extinction Rebellion (XR), Mothers Out Front, New York Communities for Change, and the youth climate strike have organized all kinds of actions at BlackRock offices. While the possibilities for creativity are endless, some of the most powerful ideas include: 

 

  • a teach-in: gathering out front of their offices to share the background docs above, handing out flyers to passers-by   

  • a die-in: outside their offices with a more theatrical, symbolic showing of how climate change kills 

  • adding a BlackRock theme or section to an existing march, rally, or strike 

  • finding out when a senior executive is speaking publicly and asking tough questions about their lack of climate action 

  • attending a campus recruitment event where BlackRock is searching for new employees 


There will also be upcoming distributed days of action and events in New York at their headquarters that we will tell you about. Contact us for more or to talk action ideas through.

We are committed to principles of democratic organizing and to a strict code of non-violence.
