Public Bank Training and Lobby Day

  • Arch Street United Methodist Church 55 North Broad Street Philadelphia, PA, 19107 United States (map)

What if the City had its own bank and no longer had to leave its billions of reserve dollars to the tender mercies of Wall St? Pipe dream? Hardly. A public bank was established in North Dakota 100 years ago, and it's still going strong. It can happen here in Philly, if we have the will to push our elected officials to make it happen.

Join us over lunch to learn about the power of public banking, and how to talk about it. Then we'll carry our message to City Council. What message? We want Council to create a Philly Public Bank now so that Philly's people can take control over the people's money.
