About NPBA

National Public Banking Alliance is a coalition of organizations working to create socially and environmentally responsible public banks.

Our mission is to mobilize communities to advance socially and environmentally responsible public banks throughout the United States. We are a coalition of grassroots activists rooted in the divest/reinvest movement to redirect our money away from Wall Street and toward Main Street. Our goal is to create public banks that support just, equitable, and inclusive economic development; follow transparent, ethical, sustainable, and regenerative investment guidelines; strengthen existing local community banks and credit unions; and serve the needs of entire communities by ensuring the meaningful involvement of their underserved members.
