End the Dual Financial System

Financial institutions (e.g., banks, investment firms, insurance companies, and credit reporting agencies) have been and continue to be key drivers of the Oppression Economy. As financiers of racist practices such as slavery to being responsible for the subprime mortgage crisis, financial institutions have been front and center in the creation of our economy’s most oppressive policies and practices. To maintain their stranglehold on the Oppression Economy, these elite institutions have created a dual financial system in which mostly White households can build wealth, while people of color are largely excluded from building wealth or stripped of the little bit of wealth they may own. To dismantle the Oppression Economy, we must end this dual financial system.
