Profiles in Courage – Bette McDevitt

We are proud to announce our Profiles in Courage feature on our website, where we tell you about supporters of our campaign who close their accounts or choose not to bank with PNC until they Stop Banking the Bomb!

This month we talked with long-time activist Bette McDevitt.

SBtB: “Bette, what made you choose a different bank than PNC?”

Bette: “I would rather a neighborhood bank that reinvests their money in the community.”

SBtB: “What would you like to tell the CEO of PNC Bank and their board about their investment in nuclear weapons?”

Bette: “These investments are immoral; the money is sucked out of the community,  brings no benefits, and only allows the war machine to keep on grinding out weapons of destruction.”


Please let us know if you are closing your accounts or not using PNC Bank because of their investments in nuclear weapons.

If you would like to move your money out of PNC, please consider these options.
