Public Banking Around the World

October 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Please join us on October 20, 2021 at 11 a.m. ET for an exciting convening, “Public Banking Around the World: Lessons for New York.” Click here to register for this virtual event.

New Economy Project recently teamed up with The Vance Center for International Justice to survey seven public banks on four continents, and we can’t wait to share our findings with you.

Although public banking is underutilized in the U.S., it is common throughout the world. Public banks are advancing workers’ rights, investing in a renewable future, and responding quickly and effectively to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Panelists will discuss key takeaways from the survey and highlight lessons for New York policymakers and activists. Confirmed panelists include Mauro Folegotto of Banco Ciudad de Buenos Aires and Melissa Marquez of Genesee Co-op Federal Credit Union in Rochester, NY. Additional speakers to be announced.

As momentum for public banking builds in New York and across the U.S., come learn about international models and ways to get involved locally in this urgent fight for racial and economic justice. Register today.

See you there!
