Hi, everyone. I was inspired after yesterday’s group conversation to record my post this week, rather than write it. Thank you for watching.
Credit unions have the power to act, to make emergency loans (with our money!) to keep people in their homes and forestall an eviction and foreclosure crisis.
We have the power to act, as cooperative movement leaders, to call credit unions to rise to this occasion and shelter America in one of her darkest moments.
The Washington Post article I mention is the top link right now on this collection we’re making of news articles about how dire the situation is right now in America.
If you want to be part of a rapidly growing group working on this, please come to our meeting on Thursday night, 7pm-8:30p ET, to discuss what we can do to get credit unions off the sidelines and to keep people in their homes. https://i.weown.it/august2020
EDIT: We have a draft letter now in Google Docs — thank you for reviewing, your feedback and suggested edits, and for signing on.
Let’s do this together. Thank you!
