Bronx Canvassing for Postal Banking

  • Garrison Playground East 146th Street Bronx, NY United States (map)

The Racial Justice Working Group has a new campaign to bring Postal Banking to the Bronx! Even better, both the Debt & Finance and Climate Justice Working Groups have agreed to work with us to get this passed!

We are going back out to canvass for more signatures near the 149th St-Grand Concourse Station on the 2/4/5 subway lines. Meet up at Garrison Playground!

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.
