Advocacy

Advocate for Credit Unions

Promoting The Credit Union Difference

As not-for-profit cooperative entities owned by their members instead of shareholders, credit unions are able to put people before profit. Whether it's helping a member escape predatory lending, rebuild credit, weather an illness, save for a home, or simply be given a second chance, credit unions are innately equipped to provide a lifeline when others can't.

The League gives 3.4 million Wisconsin credit union members a voice, and our Credit Union Activists work tirelessly to illustrate to policymakers the REAL impact credit unions have on the financial well-being of families and communities.
