Break Up The Banks Family and ANWF Supporters

Please email tyc@anewwayforward.org to add your group.


We invite your group to join a committee to steer the course for breaking up the banks, all of whom believe that the major financial industry players have had far too much control over the response to the economic crisis that is destroying our communities.

We need to put people in the seat of power over the bankers. If we don’t address the way companies are allowed to grow so big that they can take down the country, we will lose the very battle that can also deliver us to a safer, stabler economy.

While each group has a different specific piece of legislative focus, we all share a belief that Wall Street power over government policy is far too great, and that we need to assert control over the large, insolvent companies that are currently being funded by taxpayer dollars.

Consumers Union and ANWF Letter on Regulation

Alternet spearheads an ANWF petition to be delivered to Congress

Matt Yglesias: Rallies are being planned… the moment of crisis seems like the only time when the political power of the financial sector can feasibly be overcome. If we say we’re going to deal with this later, after we’ve fixed the immediate problems, then attention is going to wander on to other things’
