Happy International Women's Day! From New York City to Los Angeles, Women Occupy and CODEPINK are holding Bank of America – the biggest of the big banks – accountable for their predatory economic policies that are destroying U.S. families and communities.
We will be inside and outside the banks dressed as Super Sheros to avenge economic injustice. Will you join our Justice League and take action? Sign our petition to the Board of Governors at the Federal Reserve and tell them to Bust Up B of A. They have the authority and need to use it before B of A does anymore damage to the US economy.
Bank of America, a member of the “League of Doom,” not only leads the pack in illegal foreclosure practices, faulty loans, and tax evasion, it also pillages customers with exorbitant fees. In addition, as the official bank of the US military, the bank has been accused of improperly foreclosing on active-duty troops.
Women have long been the prime targets of predatory bank policies and economic collapse. Women are 32% more likely than men to receive sub‑prime mortgages, and Latina and African-American women borrowers are most likely to receive sub‑prime loans at every income level. It's time to tell Bank of America that we're not going to take it anymore!
Since it started in the early 20th century, International Women's Day has been rooted in the struggle for economic justice, growing out of local demonstrations by women workers demanding shorter hours, better pay, voting rights, and an end to discrimination.
Take action today. Before it is too late. The country is depending on you.
We are joining with Occupy Wall Street and the women-led campaigns at Rainforest Action Network, The Other 98% and Public Citizen to bust up Bank of America! Join us!
Super Sheros unite for economic justice!
