    We, the undersigned, call on the Mayor and the City Council to create a public bank for the District of Columbia that would:

    • Require our tax dollars be deposited in the DC Public Bank and not put at risk by private Wall Street banks making speculative investments

    • Make loans in partnership with local lenders to support DC businesses and create jobs for DC residents

    • Reduce the city’s borrowing costs for public investments that improve our quality of life

    • Help build an environmentally sustainable DC

    • Lend funds for affordable housing

    • Establish lending priorities based on regular input from DC residents
