The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) participated in a virtual check presentation in coordination with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) BOLD PAC for its congressional members of the House Financial Services Committee.

The Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC), CUNA’s federal PAC (Political Action Committee), presented $22,500 in re-election contributions to nine members, in addition to CULAC’s $5,000 donation to CHC BOLD PAC.

BOLD PAC is the political arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. BOLD PAC supports Hispanic candidates for the House and Senate who champion the values of the caucus.

This event highlighted Hispanic leaders in the credit union movement and showcased the important role credit unions play in advancing financial inclusion and improving financial well-being for all Americans. One major topic discussed was how credit unions can expand access for underserved communities. Credit unions continue to stay collaborative and innovative to help their members.

During the discussion, Congressmen Pete Aguilar, Juan Vargas, and Raul Ruiz praised the important role credit unions play for their constituents and members!

As a reminder, this is one of the many benefits of contributing to CULAC. The California Credit Union League appreciates credit union leaders' continued support. Without generous donations, the League would not be able to provide these invaluable discussions.

A special "thank you" goes to participating credit unions: Altura CU, Boulder Dam CU, California CU, Kinecta FCU, SCE FCU, and WestStar CU.
