Public Banking 101 at 350 Alabama St.

[Click here for the Facebook event]

Public banking is where many divestment efforts converge. RE-Investment via public banking has re-emerged as an avenue to fulfill to these calls for divestment. Here in San Francisco, people are pushing for a movement to divest our city taxpayer money from Wall Street, and reinvest that money in affordable housing, green energy infrastructure, schools and more. ZERO financial background to come learn how we can take $11 BILLION of SF taxpayer money out of Wall Street and reinvest it into Our Streets.

Pack the Chamber! Hearing on the Public Bank Task Force

**Accessibility information below***

Come speak with us at public comment to demand the Treasurer recommend a public bank for the people, by the people!

Malia Cohen is calling the Treasurer's Office to the Budget and Finance Committee to answer for what (little) progress Treasurer Jose Cisneros has made on the Public Bank Task Force.

After a year of task force meetings, the Treasurer's office has yet to provide a pathway to establishing a bank that
- replaces Wall Street banks as the city's banker and investment manager (to manage $11 billion of city taxpayer money)
- can be established within 5 years
- finances affordable housing, renewable energy and infrastructure, small businesses, agriculture, and low-cost student loans
- underwrites bonds
- does NOT compete with local banks or credit unions by originating loans, but rather by participating in loans
- does NOT compete with local banks or credit unions by engaging in retail banking (having branches for people to open accounts)
- provides competitive salaries for bank staff
- is governed by a robust mission, principles, and governance structure accountable to the people of San Francisco
- takes advantage of low-cost Financial Technology afforded to the city of San Francisco
