National Bank Transfer Day

Business and individuals are fed up with high bank fees and the role large banks played in the financial collapse.  You can join them on Nov 5th by closing your account at a big bank and moving it to a community bank or credit union.

Since the financial collapse the "too big to fail" banks have only gotten bigger, risking our economy further.  Main Street Alliance members fought back against high interchange fees only to see them shifted to consumers.  Small business lending has slowed to a trickle and foreclosures continue to strip wealth from homeowners and devastate communities.

Our partners at New Bottom Line have created a website to help people navigate the process of closing accounts at the big banks and finding a community bank or credit union.  There is a page you can use to track how much money has been moved out of the big banks.
