Public banking is a growing movement that seeks to reimagine our financial system by restoring the common good. The US’s widening racial wealth gap is a result of corporate and public policy that dictates who banks invest in and where loans are made. These decisions have a disparate impact on communities of color and are matters of public concern.
How can public banks advance racial equity and bring fairness to our financial system?
In this webinar, you’ll hear from a panel of leading experts on racial inequality and public banking to learn how public banks can address root causes of the racial wealth gap.
