“Today was living proof that the housing justice movement is alive and well. It’s inspiring to see people from so many communities–Somali families trying to send money home, security guards on strike, college students, neighbors reclaiming their neighborhood from crime and blight, even Wells Fargo employees–all coming together to stand for a change to Wells Fargo’s practices,” said Anthony Newby, executive director of Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC). “Minnesota deserves better, and it’s time Wells Fargo stepped up to the challenge.”
