Today Exxon Mobil, one of the world's biggest polluters & contributors to man-made climate change, is in New York City. They will meet with financial analysts at the New York Stock Exchange to release its capital budget and to discuss how to distribute over $30 billion in long-term investments over 2015.
Working families and people of color have lost too much due to the extreme weather caused by corporations like EXXON. #ExxonShouldInvest in our planet & our communities! Here’s what Sandy survivors & community members have to tell Exxon:
Exxon’s CEO, Rex Tillerson, might discuss Exxon’s billions in earnings, risk investment, operational excellence, and profitable growth opportunities.

Our communities & our planet are the best long term investment. Click here to share the video with your friends!
