This meeting is with two local bank presidents, Doug Gaumer (Intrust Bank) and Cindy Yulich (Emprise Bank). Justice Matters is reaching out to Directors/CEOs of banks, major employers, construction companies, and developers in Lawrence with three purposes:
- Introduce the organization/build a relationship of mutual respect
- Seek allies in the call for an affordable housing trustfund in Lawrence
- Request financial investment in our work on affordable housing
A trained spokesperson will lead the meeting, but Justice Matters members are encouraged to come to show broad public support on these matters. We will host a pre-meeting at 1 pm at Z's Coffee Shop to finalize our approach and then walk to 901 Vermont at 1:30 for a meeting with Doug Gaumer and Cindy Yulich.
