Town Halls July 2020

In virtual Town Halls hosted by the Public Banking Institute and local grassroots organizations in Connecticut on July 15 and Southern California on July 22, panelists will examine how a public bank could become a real financial lifeline to communities struggling with the COVID-19 crises. Public banks have been shown to respond more rapidly, effectively and equitably to crises than privately-owned banks.
