Print Don't Bank On It

In 2012 New York City passed a law called The Responsible Banking Act (RBA) to help make sure banks are meeting the needs of local communities. The RBA gives NYC a way to evaluate bank activities and gives community members a chance to speak up about their community’s needs, how banks are responding, and how banks can improve.

CUP collaborated with the advocacy organization ANHD and designers Andrew Shea and Christina Beard of MANY to create Don’t Bank On It, which shows how the Responsible Banking Act works, the importance of community participation to making the law effective, and the dramatic impacts banks can have in shaping communities.
