Public Banking can save the planet, close the equity gap, address systemic racism, stop funding weapons and global wars, and level the playing field for women and families. Learn more in the first series of our special and accessible workshops for women—and become a skilled advocate for economic change in your community!
This is an entirely digital, small-group series of six sessions offered at a sliding scale. We’ll kick off our first session on Friday, April 8th at 8pm eastern/5pm pacific. Then we’ll meet together five more Fridays, at the same time (8pm eastern/5pm pacific), on April 29th, May 20th, June 10th, July 1st and July 22nd.All registration fees are donations that will fuel our work to make this information widely accessible.
Together with the guidance of a skilled advocate instructor, you’ll learn why public banking is currently taking off in cities and states around the US, what advantages and progress it’s offering locally, and how switching to a public bank from the too-big-to-fail Wall Street banks could save your state or city huge dollars better spent for affordable education, housing, and local loans for small businesses and farms.
You’ll also get convincing talking points, strategies and mentoring from experienced organizers to advance public banking locally, build your confidence and credibility in a male-dominated world, move past hesitations and objections and the well-heeled lobbying of big transnational banks; to most effectively support existing local initiatives, and start the dialogue from scratch with the folks who need to be at the table. You’ll find help to make your points effectively without ‘mansplaining’ and ‘manterruptions’, and how to be taken seriously, even if you have no banking experience behind you.
To register, select “donation.” Please be mindful that this amount covers all six sessions. We value this course at $120, but even six dollars—one dollar per season—will get you on the roster. We offer programming on a sliding scale in keeping with our internal values of accessibility regardless of economic means. (If you can afford to give more, please do, so that we may be able to continue offering free and low-cost economic justice resources to the public!)
