      2. MOTION: Submit a Community Impact Statement in support of Council File 17-0330 (“Wells Fargo Bank / Options for Divestment”), as follows:
        BRIEF SUMMARY:
        Los Feliz Neighborhood Council (LFNC) recommends that, through its Budget and Finance Committee, the Los Angeles City Council advises the City’s Office of Finance to divest from Wells Fargo Bank (and/or any other financial institutions investing in the destruction of our environment) and to reinvest those funds in responsible financial institutions that respect the rights of all individuals to be treated fairly and equitably, and that protect the environment.
        ADDITIONAL INFO:
        The establishment of a public bank for the funds of the City of Los Angeles should be considered in conjunction with the divestment movement. During the major economic crash of 2008, the State Bank of North Dakota turned record profits while private intuitions were forced to ask for public bailouts. This type of control over funds allows investment opportunities directly benefitting the City, where opportunities include: rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, transitioning to a green energy grid, and bolstering environmentally-friendly public transportation, among others. More information provided in LFNC’s attached resolution (17 0321 – Wells Fargo DAPL Divestment).
        (Board Packet)
