CUNA Board Passes Resolution Committing to Advance Equitable Service to Black Communities
The CUNA Board of Directors voted Thursday to pass a resolution in response to the national conversation surrounding the murder of George Floyd and the disparities faced by black Americans. The resolution follows CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle’s commitment earlier this week that the organization would be an advocate against social injustice.
“The credit union mission of ‘people helping people’ calls on us to recognize the inequities facing black members and black communities. We can and should do more to listen, learn, speak up, and take action to help dismantle racial disparities,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “Given CUNA’s leadership role within the credit union movement, it is far past time that we speak out and support efforts to break down the systems that enable racism. We look forward to working with the Leagues and system partners, including the African American Credit Union Coalition, to deliver meaningful change in the credit union system and — most importantly — the lives of credit union members.”Go to main navigation
