MN Neighborhood Organizing for Change is targeting Wells Fargo targeted because it's the largest lender in the market, said Nick Muhammad, the group's community organizer.
"Wells Fargo's not going to take me closing my account very seriously. But the state accounts they do hold, that they're custodians over — those are accounts that generate a significant amount of money for them," Muhammad said. "If we can get them to lose one of those accounts, or at least have it temporarily stalled, it'll let them know the community is serious about them changing their practices."
