Operation HOPE and the Silver Rights Movement continues to grow and expand, and here is a fast moving map of our existing HOPE Inside locations. The first HOPE Inside locations were rooted on the west coast with Bank of the West, and on the east coast with SunTrust Banks.
Bill Rogers, Chairman & CEO of SunTrust Banks, a prominent Operation HOPE Global Board Member, was the first Fortune 500 CEO to advocate for bringing HOPE Inside, inside of bank branches — starting with his own bank platform.
Including our HOPE Business In A Box Academies, and HOPE Inside Certified Plus commitments and pledges, Operation HOPE today has more than 380 pledges for Operation HOPE Project 5117 locations. Operation HOPE has committed to opening more than 1,000 locations by year 2020.
