Grassroots Advocacy efforts connects you to your government. Whether issues arise at the Federal or State level, you can be an advocate for your credit union by participating in our programs. Using traditional Grassroots tactics, the Leagues connects you to our cause.
Political Action Committees are organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates, with most PACs representing business, labor or ideological interests.
If your credit union would like talking points for an issue, such as member business lending (MBL) or supplemental capital, the Leagues' Consumer Advocacy Department can develop one to suit your particular needs. Please contact Public Affairs and Consumer Advocacy Specialist Tina Ramos-Ingold at email@example.com
