Building on its partnership with and commitment from Regions Bank to open and launch 100 HOPE Inside locations together, across the Regions Bank branch footprint, I am honored to join the Regions team later this week, Friday, for the opening of our next two HOPE Inside locations. The latest in the scheduled openings will launch in the headquarters city for Regions Bank, of Birmingham, Alabama.
We are opening locations serving both rural, small town communities, and also urban underserved communities. Operation HOPE will become the ‘Starbucks of financial inclusion,’ and we will continue to fulfill the commitment of then President Abraham Lincoln with his vision of and for the Freedman’s Bank. Likewise, we will work to advance the unfinished work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his ‘Poor People’s campaign.’
That work begins here, with the opening and day to day work of our newest HOPE Inside locations. Here is a link to the coming announcements scheduled for this Friday in Birmingham, Alabama.
