Don't let Wall Street's Big Banks make their profits off your back—pledge
to move your money to a credit union or local bank.

Move Your Money!<>

Dear MoveOn member,

I'll admit it, I didn't move all my money last November—although I did
switch my savings account to a local credit union. But with a whole month
in which to do it this time, I'm taking the plunge and moving every last

May is Move Our Money Month, and you can be part of the grassroots push to
take our money out of the hands of the Big Banks whose greed and fraud
crashed the economy, and move it into responsible locally owned and
controlled community credit unions and banks.1

Last year, 650,000 people moved $4.5 billion from Wall Street's Big Banks
into local credit unions and small banks.2 If you haven't yet, now you have
a second chance to make the Big Banks pay.

*Pledge to move your money to a local credit union or community

*If you've already moved your money, report it

Moving our money to local credit unions and banks makes a direct
bottom-line impact on Big Banks. And because Wall Street's political power
comes from its money, the more money we move, the more we put power back
into the hands of the people.

I hope you'll join me and thousands of other members of MoveOn, The New
Bottom Line, The Other 98%, and other progressives who are fed up with
handing our money over to the same banks that are foreclosing on our homes,
hitting us with unfair fees, and refusing to loan money to local businesses.

*Pledge to move your money to a local credit union or community

*If you've already moved your money, report it

Moving our bank accounts to credit unions and small local banks helps to
ensure that our money is managed responsibly and put to work helping our
communities prosper, not just to helping billionaires profit.

Thanks for all you do.
