Banking On New Mexico Symposium Complete Session Videos

We Are People Here! and the Public Banking Institute together presented a national public banking symposium, Banking on New Mexico: Funding Local, Sustainable Economies — A symposium to educate and inform the citizens of New Mexico about the role a public bank could play in supporting the creation of a sustainable, more democratic economy.

The symposium was hosted by Mayor Javier Gonzalez and the City of Santa Fe and held at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center on Saturday, September 27, 2014, a wonderful fall day in Santa Fe.

The symposium was a powerful, informative, and very inspiring experience. It provided inspiration for both the heart and mind.
