Over the past few months, Bank of America has announced the closure of thirty-one branches, while Wells Fargo has already closed ten and plans to close nine more. This year, California has seen the closure of 282 bank branches, making it the second-highest number of closures this century, second only to last year’s numbers.

Many people are concerned that the closure of numerous bank branches can result in the creation of “banking deserts” and negatively affect communities.

“We are concerned about the closures, especially in communities of color and lower-income communities because of how that affects lending. If you’re going to get a small business loan or a home loan, you’re likely going to need to go into a branch.” Paulina Gonzalez-Brito, CEO of Rise Economy, formerly the California Reinvestment Coalition
