Disrupting Displacement Financing

California’s displacement crisis most affects residents of color and low-income residents who can no longer afford to live in the communities they have been a part of, often for generations. Banks and investors who sign on to our Anti-Displacement Code of Conduct vow not to finance landlords who use loopholes to evict tenants, but instead to invest in affordable housing.

Tell Bank of America: Stand with Immigrants

Recent reports allege that Bank of America has taken steps to close bank accounts belonging to non-citizens. By forcing people to verify their citizenship status, Bank of America is restricting access and making it even harder for immigrants to save money for immigration-related emergencies, build their assets and plan for their futures.

Sign our Credo Action petition.

Please contact us if you have been asked to verify your citizenship by your bank.
