The events of the last week have left all of us at California Coast Credit Union with emotions ranging from sadness to outrage. I want to express to our membership and our community how deeply grieved we are as a credit union by the ongoing acts of racial injustice and violence we are witnessing throughout the nation. We are horrified by the senseless killing of Black Americans now and throughout our country’s history.
Cal Coast continues its unwavering commitment to taking direct, substantive action to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion at our credit union and in the community.
As a values based business, we stand with you and those who are underrepresented, in calling for change, respect, justice and peace. We are united in the belief that all forms of racial violence or oppression are not acceptable nor tolerated.
We are grateful to our employees and members who have already been a part of these conversations, including our Black employees and members who have shared their insights and leadership in these very difficult times. Now, more than ever, we will work together and stand united to make a difference.
