Grassroots Advocacy

Grassroots Advocacy

Using traditional Grassroots tactics, the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues connects you to our cause. Whether issues arise at the Federal or State level, you can be an advocate for your credit union by participating in our programs.

Use the following methods to stand up for your credit union:

  • Connect for the Cause
    Connect for the Cause is the League’s web-based advocacy network for all credit union supporters to advocate for our issues. Connect for the Cause allows credit union supporters to communicate quickly and directly with their Member of Congress or State Legislators concerning important issues that affect our industry. 
  • Stay Connected
    Become an advocate for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues by connecting with your Members of Congress, State Legislators, and local officials on Facebook! Social networking is an innovative web tool that brings people together, spreads information, and allows you to personalize your web experience.
  • Advocacy Blog
    Subscribe to the Advocacy Blog to receive up-to-the-minute information on our legislative efforts.
  • Project Zip Code®
    Project Zip Code (PZC) is a national database program that supports credit union advocacy efforts by counting credit union members and matching them by congressional district, state legislative district, and county. PZC provides a clear picture of the credit union movement’s collective grassroots strength. Update your PZC every year to make sure your members count!
