Progress on NOC's divestment campaign!
Today, NOC released the following statement:
The national settlement between banks and Attorneys General announced today is stronger than it might have been because of a grassroots campaign and pressure from a handful of state Attorneys General, including Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson, who publicly advocated for a tougher deal.
“The $25 billion settlement is only a down payment on what major banks like Wells Fargo need to pay to fix the damage they wrecked upon homeowners, our communities, and our economy,” said Steve Fletcher Executive Director of Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC). “Attorney General Lori Swanson was 100% right to demand that the settlement not let the banks off the hook for all of their misdeeds that led to the foreclosure crisis.”
