Organize A Local "Move Our Money" Action
In the coming months, workers, faith leaders, students, families, congregations, unions, and community groups will come together to move $1 billion of our money out of big banks like Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo and take back control of the resources our communities need to grow and thrive.
Together, we will say to the big banks: No more profiting off of millions of illegal foreclosures. No more billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded bailouts. No more hoarding a trillion-plus dollars while our communities crumble and good jobs disappear. No more stealing our democracy and using our money to buy elected officials.
The tool kit below will provide your organization with the key steps to move money from the big banks and into local banks that will invest in our communities.
This tool kit is recommended for community groups, congregations and other organized groups who want to organize an action to publicize that they are moving their money out of a big bank. If you are an individual who would like to organize a one-time public event to move money out of a big bank in your area, go to www.moveourmoneyusa.org for more information.
