On November 23rd, We Own It and organizers from The People's Bailout came together to learn about organizing our nations Credit Unions. Our executive director, Jake Schlachter, presented on the history of Credit Unions and the role that they can and should play to protect their member owners from the economic crisis this country is facing. Credit Unions have 56 billion dollars in a "rainy day" fund – this is money that can provide stop gap measures to help prevent millions of Americans from getting evicted.
Thank you to everyone who joined us, we look forward to building partnerships and organizing the cooperative movement together.
