Inclusiv remembers the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

NEW YORK, NY (January 17, 2023) — 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 and is the place to be to network with other allies in the credit union movement.

This year’s theme, Where Do We Go from Here? Economic Justice and Credit Unions is inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King’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 underfunded communities across the US.
Join us at Inclusiv Conference 2023 and network with 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.

Inclusiv remembers and honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s contributions to American society. One of Dr. King’s enduring crusades was the Poor People’s Campaign: a call for economic justice and equality for all. Inclusiv and our allies in the credit movement are proud to further this crusade with our mission to help low-and-moderate income people and communities achieve financial independence through credit unions.
