AFLEP Retake Our Democracy event

New Mexico webinar Oct 26, 8pm ET / 6pm MT / 5pm PT— Creating a Public Bank in NM

New Mexico advocacy organization the Alliance for Local Economic Prosperity (AFLEP) and Retake Our Democracy are co-hosting a public banking webinar on Wednesday, October 26.

Details from AFLEP:

Join AFLEP Executive Director Angela Merkert and AFLEP Public Bank Campaign Director / retired banker Harold Dixon to discover precisely how a state public bank would collaborate, not compete, with community banks. Joining the panel will be Helga Garcia, Chair of the NM Food & Agriculture Policy Council, and two rural business people who will describe how lack of access to capital impedes their business development and how a state public bank could change that. Also joining the panel will be State Rep. Christine Trujillo and State Sen. Carrie Hamblin who will lay out what the legislative challenges will be and how you can help overcome them and get this done. Join us to find out more about how a public bank would benefit New Mexicans and what you can do to support the effort.
