Hi, I'm Kristen Christian & I started Bank Transfer Day. AMA!
When I was outraged by the fees several "big banks" were planning to charge, I took action. After moving my money to a credit union, I created a Facebook event encouraging others to follow my lead. Since October 2011 Bank Transfer Day has inspired millions of Americans to change the way they bank, and similar movements have sprung up across the world. While continuing to advocate for consumer empowerment & economic sustainability, I work as a public speaker and consultant to help ethical organizations connect with their communities.
EDIT: I'd like to thank everyone who tuned in for this AMA! It's dinner time here, but if you still have questions, please feel free to either ask them here or on Facebook. I'll respond as soon as I'm able. Have a great weekend!!
