Wells Fargo Shareholder Action in the News

Enlace joined thousands of protesters and the 99% Power on April 24 to demand stop financing private prisons.

The 99% activists include a diverse group of shareholders, homeowners facing foreclosure, immigrant rights activists, faith organizations and labor groups from around the country.

Protesters called on Wells Fargo to end practices that profit from community losses including  financing private prisons, predatory lending, tax dodging, and foreclosures. The groups are demanding that Wells Fargo halt foreclosure pending investigation and reform, help homeowners by resetting post-bubble mortgages to their fair market values, divest from private prisons and immigrant detention centers, pays its fair share of federal taxes, and end predatory lending practices to individuals and municipalities.
