Bronx Canvassing for Postal Banking

The Racial Justice working group has a new campaign to bring Postal Banking to the Bronx! Even better, both the Debt and Finance and Climate Justice working groups have agreed to work with us to get this passed! Join us for our very first canvass alongside American Postal Workers union members where we will be gathering signatures at a family friendly event at the Bronx Zoo. Postal Banking is important because 1) Its a step toward public banking and 2) Would eliminate the need for predatory check cashing places. 4.1 million workers are paid with a payroll card. Those without a bank account typically spend $40-$50 per month on ATM Fees to access their own pay. THIS IS CLASS WAR
