Today our country faces an unprecedented time in our history. In the midst of a global health pandemic and economic recession, a social pandemic has emerged. CDC Federal Credit Union supports the fight against racial injustice. As many take to the streets and speak out against fear and unfair treatment, it is clear that the values upon which our credit union was built are as important now as they’ve ever been. For many years, CDC Federal Credit Union’s workforce, membership base, and board of directors have reflected the richness of diversity and inclusivity that we believe makes us stronger.
While there is much more that can be done to ensure we remain part of the solution, our commitment to equality and justice for Black and Brown communities is unwavering. Be it through equal employment opportunities, free financial education, fair access to high-quality, low-cost financial solutions, or community development activities, CDC Federal Credit Union is committed to the fight to end racial inequality. This fight is one that must be a common cause for all Americans. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote in his Letter from Birmingham Jail on April 16, 1963, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
CDC Federal Credit Union will continue to listen, learn, and advocate for solutions that ensure safe, thriving, and healthy communities throughout our nation.
