Inclusiv celebrates Black History Month

Economic Justice is Social Justice

NEW YORK, NY (February 1, 2023) — Inclusiv celebrates Black History Month as a way of remembering and honoring the important contributions of people from the African diaspora to American history.

We are proud to play a role in continuing the work of Civil Rights pioneers with our mission to help low-and-moderate income people and communities achieve financial independence through credit unions and programs that support Minority Depository Institution credit unions serving Black communities.

Inclusiv Conference 2023, from May 1 – 3 in Memphis, TN., is the largest gathering of credit unions with a mission of financial inclusion in the country. This year’s theme, Where Do We Go from Here? Economic Justice and Credit Unions is inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s final book which explores how to leverage victories from the Civil Rights Movement.

Dr. King’s vision of creating economic progress for the Black community through policy changes that fight poverty and wealth inequality sets the stage for a call-to-action for Community Development Credit Unions to finish the work of the Civil Rights Movement in historically redlined and disinvested communities across the US.

dynamic speakers and informative sessions will feature conversations on how credit unions can advance economic justice and work toward closing the racial wealth gap in the communities they serve.

Join us at Inclusiv Conference 2023 and engage with a strong network of like-minded credit union professionals to discuss the advocacy priorities and operational best practices that enable all of us in the credit union movement to serve the communities that need us most.
