The Growing Movement For Public Banks In NYS

October 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Growing Movement For Public Banks In NYS: 

A Briefing For Community, Labor, and Faith Organizations.

The NYS Community Equity Agenda, Public Bank NYC, and the Rochester Public Banking Coalition invite members of New York-based community, labor, and faith organizations to join a timely briefing on the growing movement for public banking in New York. 

The briefing will be held Thursday, October 1st, from 3 – 4 p.m. over Zoom. Register Here.

As Wall St. banks exploit the COVID-19 crisis and continue to exacerbate racial and economic inequality, the need for just institutions like public banks has never been clearer. 

At the briefing, participants will:

  • Learn about grassroots campaigns and state legislative opportunities to move our public money out of Wall Street banks and into public banks rooted in racial and economic justice.

  • Hear from organizers from across the state about how public banks would invest in affordable housing, local jobs, the green economy, and other community needs.

  • Share ideas and learn how your organization can get involved.
