Stand Up for Your Credit Union!
As you are well aware, merchant data breach is a chronic issue that costs credit unions millions of dollars each year. Large scale breaches like Target, Michaels, Home Depot, Neiman Marcus and Jimmy Johns get national attention, but small breaches at local stores also increase costs for credit unions. But Congress has not moved and the situation has not improved for credit unions. It is important that they hear about the impact these breaches have on credit unions and their ability to serve their members.

The Grassroots arm of the League is largely responsible for political and issue advertising that supports the credit union legislative agenda. Additionally, Grassroots places advertorials that aim to educate and remind elected officials about the role of credit unions in their communities. Here, you can view past campaigns that were developed specifically to bring messages to Members of Congress, the State Legislatures, and other elected officials in California and Nevada. Check back regularly for new campaigns.
