Huge News about Bank of America: Tell Your Friends, Family, and Coworkers
Something remarkable happened at Bank of America's annual meeting. A majority of Bank of America's shareholders voted to oust Ken Lewis as Chairman of the company's board. This is huge.
Watch this video about this news and what we did around the country to hold Bank of America accountable. Then use the form on the right to tell your friends, family, and coworkers.
Let's be clear: what happened yesterday is just the first step towards holding Bank of America accountable. Shareholders delivered a major vote of no confidence, but there's much more to be done.
While Ken Lewis is out as chairman of the board, he still remains the CEO of Bank of America. That's why we're calling on CEO Ken Lewis and new BofA Chairman Walter E. Massey to immediately implement these changes:
Commit to real financial reform
Stop consumer abuses and predatory lending practices that hurt communities
Provide bank workers access to affordable healthcare
Stop lobbying against pro-worker legislation like the Employee Free Choice Act to ensure bank workers have a voice on the job to protect consumers.
After weeks of advocating for major reforms at Bank of America we delivered more than 90,000 signed "taxpayer proxy cards" to the shareholder meeting yesterday. Allies like MoveOn.org, Brave New Films, True Majority, and many others were instrumental in the success of our actions.
