Public Bank LA joined forces to launch the FIX LA Coalition, a powerful alliance that unites key labor and community leaders. Together, our vision is clear: Los Angeles should lead the nation as an affordable, tenant-friendly city. The FIX LA Alliance stands as a united front advocating for investment in social housing, robust tenant protections, and city worker support. We’re committed to using city-owned land for affordable housing units and establishing the Los Angeles public bank.
Public Bank LA’s own Trinity Tran spoke passionately to the crowd of a few hundred at the FIX LA launch, emphasizing that the LA public bank is a critical solution to our housing crisis. It streamlines funding, empowers affordable housing advocates, and swiftly addresses housing shortages, ultimately saving the city billions of dollars.
Public Bank LA recently concluded two days of intensive public banking policy briefings for Los Angeles City Council, LA County Supervisors, and SEIU 721 leaders. In collaboration with lead authors Halah Ahmad and Paul Katz from the Jain Family Institute (JFI) and Yakov Feygin of the Berggruen Institute, we shared key insights from the LA Municipal Banking Reports.
