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.
