Big Bank Lending Practices Hurt Our Communities.
Redlining, Sub Prime Mortgages & Exploitive Lending Practices benefit the rich while People of Color take the Brunt of the suffering, losses and expenses.
The concept is lots of red ribbon/streamers/red Saran wrap. It will look kind of festive, not blocking access or doing property damage. Signage & a few folks during morning business hours.
- Stop Redlining, & unfair lending practices, with focus on how people of color have taken the brunt of these exploitive practices.
Since this is a fairly detailed/specific message and a small group, the intent is to capture talking points on video, as well as engaging folks who might be passing by. 10-12 people could make this a success!
Hopefully we could do another similar action at one or more banks in N/NE Portland soon.
