Last month, Public Citizen activists rallied in New York City, Austin and more than a dozen locales across the nation following the financial reform victory in the U.S. House. We joined our Americans for Financial Reform coalition partners in demanding Wall Street and big bank executives use their $150 billion compensation and bonus pool to help struggling families recover from the economic crisis.
The House win was a step in the right direction, but were still a long, long way away from getting accountability on Wall Street. Stay tuned for more actions as financial reform moves forward in the Senate. We need the American people to help us remind their public servants that real prosperity requires financial stability and an end to predatory banking practices.
