The attached Model Campus Safe Zones Resolution language was developed for K-12 school districts that are contemplating adopting protections for their immigrant students. We recommend that any resolution contain language to address these critical issues: Limiting the sharing of student and family information with federal immigration Authorities, Restricting immigration agents' access to campuses, Prohibiting campus security from collaborating with federal immigration authorities, Providing resources and information for immigrant students and their families. The model resolution provides sample language for these issues. We encourage you to use this language as a template and to adopt as many pieces to fit the needs of your school district. We also encourage you to add additional points beyond what is in this resolution and to share your creative and innovative ideas with us.

Across the country and for the last several years, Bank On coalitions have taken similar, but diverse local approaches to boosting banking access for the millions of people still outside of the financial mainstream. Local Bank On coalitions generally share two key characteristics: they believe that banking access is critical to individual and community financial security, and they know that real progress takes a joint effort among stakeholders and partners committed to the cause. Along the way, the field has produced best practices and hard lessons learned, both. With the advent of a national platform, the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund now provides tools, funding, and technical assistance to support local coalition success. These tools include producing the Bank On National Account Standards, capacity grants, research pilots, and now this Bank On Coalition Playbook. This Playbook includes tools and best practices gathered through both local experience and national experts, from advocates and financial institutions, from regulators and community organizations. As the CFE Fund continues to release new chapters to this living and breathing resource, we encourage you to share your ideas, experiences, and needs to help ensure that the Playbook can advance our joint and individual efforts.
