Shameful Suruga Bank

Suruga Bank’s decision to set up a blatantly racist requirement for a bank account is absolutely unacceptable, especially given the historic racist stereotypes of minorities as being synonymous with suspects and criminals. Lower court judge Shogo Okazaki (岡崎昌吾) wrongfully wrote about banking crimes by minorities and immigrants.

Join us in demanding that Suruga Bank and all those involved in the decision to make a discriminatory policy apologize unequivocally. Suruga Bank needs to know that there is no room for this kind of insensitivity and divisiveness — it distracts us from the real work that we need to do to foster an era of change, collaboration, and acceptance of all people.
