As members of CAP (Citizens Action Program), Bernie Willow, Hazel Montgomery and Stanley Nappolomi all have their questions and concerns about the communities in which they reside and who gave the banks the right to determine which neighborhoods and communities are deteriorating. An outspoken, almost militant member, Bernie Willow, points out that the charters of savings and loans institutions was to loan money out so people could reside in the neighborhoods. Many of the establishments, Willow says, have dropped the word “Loan” from the businesses.
