Public banking

June 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and then Signature Bank prods the question, "Is my money safe?”

Might public banking help?

What are public banks, and how do they work? Who owns them, and how do they differ from private banks and credit unions? Would they replace our current system of banks, and could they prevent bank runs like those that recently led to the collapse of both Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank?

Why should I care, and what do public banks have to do with privacy?

At this month’s event, Professor Rohan Grey, of Willamette University, will join us to talk about public banking and to answer these questions. He’ll explain the difference between private and public banks and how public banking could help people, states, and communities in crisis.

Bring your questions, and come learn about public banking!

Please RSVP via this Meetup page or by sending an email to ta3mevents@pdxprivacy.org.
