the move your money campaign is circulating with Virginia Organizing project, but I don't see any fealty to smallness in this latest campaign. In fact, what they seem to appeal to is the idea that the campaign will get banks to do things differently. This implies they are fine with bigness, just not how the banks operate.

I didn't pay attention to the rest of the analysis put forth here awhile back. What was objectionable about credit unions?

Do you bank with the Big Banks? (Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, et al)

Take It Back To Build a New Bottom Line !!

Wall Street and the Big Banks take from the 99% to make the 1% get richer. They crashed the economy and cost us, but it's American families who are stuck picking up the tab. That's why Americans are coming to collect and do what politicians have failed to do. We're going to take back our money until the Big Banks invest in our communities. Through this action, we will say to the Big Banks: No more profiting off of millions of illegal foreclosures. No more billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded bailouts. No more hoarding a trillion-plus dollars while our communities crumble and good jobs disappear. No more stealing our democracy, using our money to buy elected officials. Communities and organizations across the nation are moving their money from the Big Banks to say, "not with my money." Every dollar we take back goes towards building a new bottom line that means good jobs, healthy communities, and a government that fights for the 99%. The Big Bank's irresponsible practices must be stopped. Please join us in our campaign to put our money where our values are.
