Banking Values at Vancity Credit Union

Hilary Henegar and fellow in video on banking values at Vancity credit union

Here’s a sneak peek at a project I am working on with Hilary Henegar on banking values and credit unions. As much as that sounds like a snore, it is anything but. Through this project I have met some really motivated and innovative people working on amazing projects guided by their ideals and principles. This shot is of Hilary with one of our interviewees, Kevin Millsip. Kevin is a co-founder and director of Next Up, a leadership program for young people ¬†committed to social & environmental justice. The sound bite that stuck in my head after his interview was this, “After paying off my student loan to the Royal Bank I took my money to an institution that reflected my own values.” It’s almost too easy to think of banks as storage units for our money but the truth is that banks are using our savings and loans – in some cases, driving like it was stolen.
