Salem WFP "Oregon Banks Local" Forum

There's a movement sweeping across Oregon - a movement that is questioning where the state puts its money.
 
It's a movement that is asking how we can build a more self sufficient economy independent from the power of Wall Street.  It is a movement demanding that we use our common financial resources to support small Oregon businesses and family farmers--not out-of-state mega banks.
 
Last legislative session, a proposal to create a State Bank just barely missed a chance for a floor vote.  However, the fight didn't stop there.
 
Over the past few months, some candidates running for local office around the state have started to propose keeping municipal money in local banks - working for our community - not sitting in the same too-big-to-fail banks that crashed our economy.  Something truly remarkable is bubbling up from the grassroots!

This forum will be your best chance to find out the current state of legislative proposals aimed at bringing Oregon's money back to Oregon.

Join the Oregon Working Families Party at a forum to discuss these critical issues.

Date: February 1st, 2012
Time:  6:00 - 7:30pm
Location: Auditorium of the Salem Public Library

Note: A membership meeting of the Mid-Valley chapter of the WFP will follow directly after this forum.  Those who wish to attend this meeting may do so, but decision making will be reserved for WFP members.
