Dear Altura Members:
Altura Credit Union has a history of supporting our communities and making a difference. The tragic death of George Floyd is a painful reminder that systemic racism and injustice continue to plague our nation. A silence that has too long filled the collective ears of America is finally sounding an alarm to seek justice for all.
We know that many of our own employees and Members, who have lived under the dark shadow of social injustice, are hurting and are now called to action. We want you to know that you are not alone. Altura Credit Union stands with our community and all who fight to guarantee basic human rights to bring meaningful change.
As we navigate these challenging times, every member of the Altura community can count on our continued unwavering dedication to inclusivity and diversity. In the weeks and months ahead, we will look for ways we can be a louder voice in bringing permanent change, as well as acknowledging where we can do better.
2020 has certainly been a year of difficulty, as these recent events occur in the midst of a pandemic. But in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. –
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
Let us continue to stand strong together.
Board of Directors and CEO
