Join NYS Sen. James Sanders Jr, NYS Assembly Member Victor Pichardo, and a panel of experts and elected officials that includes Eric Hardmeyer, CEO of the Bank of North Dakota, for a virtual Town Hall that will examine how a public bank could help New York’s future.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the deeply rooted imbalances at the core of so many of our economic institutions. As Wall St. banks continue to exploit the crisis and exacerbate economic inequalities, we must advance towards a financial solution that will help us invest in our New York. The need for a public bank that will generate revenue, with the community as its top priority — has never been clearer. It is time to invest our citizens’ money into institutions that serve them, so join Sen. Sanders and his co-host PBI Advisory Board member Dr. Amara Enyia as they moderate panelists to “Bring on the Power of Public Banking for New York State.” This Town Hall will be livestreamed on Facebook, where staff from PBI and Sen. Sanders’ office will answer your questions in real time.
