hawaiibank

The Bank of Hawaii’s proposed closure of its Samoan offices would have been devastating to American Samoa’s economy, leaving them with no bank. So Drew Astolfi of the organization Faith Action for Community Equity (FACE) created a MoveOn Petition urging the bank not to pull out without a public hearing. The Bank of Hawaii agreed to hold a public hearing, and after doing so, decided that they need more time to make a decision about the future of their presence in Samoa.
