Revolution LA Interview with The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur Check out Trinity Tran and Phoenix Goodman on The Young Turks as they discuss Revolution LA, Divest LA and its evolution into Public Bank LA! 


Divest LA: The Movement Revolution LA created the Divest LA campaign in February 2017 for the City of Los Angeles to divest public funds from Wells Fargo for its long history of corrupt and unethical banking practices. After a hard-hitting grassroots campaign led by millennials and allies, in June 207, LA City Council unanimously voted to begin the process to divest $40 million in holdings from Wells Fargo, in addition to a comprehensive overhaul of the city’s financial framework. In December 2017, Divest LA is preparing for our second victory as LA City Council will soon vote on the Request for Proposal (RFP) banking contract which will effectively disqualify Wells Fargo from the City's commercial banking services because of the bank's downgraded Federal Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rating. The City will also strengthen the language of the Social Responsibility criteria for banks bidding for services as a direct result of Divest LA's citizens' lobbying and advocacy.
