photo da3-color_zpsf9036587.jpg We are always looking for new people to join us, and work on our many projects, which include saving the Berkeley Post Office, organizing for public banking in Oakland, getting funding from the city of Vallejo for nonprofit check cashing (and public bank study initiatives), working with the City of Richmond and other municipalities for eminent domain seizure of underwater mortgages from the banksters, and much more.

“Just as bosses are dependent on workers, so are lenders dependent on borrowers. If workers walk out, the enterprise stops. If borrowers refuse to pay their debts, the lenders could be in real trouble. Each side depends on the other. The millions of underwater mortgage holders, of student debtors and credit card holders, need the bank loans –  but so do the banks need those borrowers, and they especially need them to cooperate by paying their monthly charges. Otherwise, the capital that the banks list on their books begins to drain away.” ~Francis Fox Piven
