Location & Hours
Residents, leaders, activists, and all sorts of people in Harambee and Riverwest are coming together to create a credit union that will serve us. This effort is being led by many individuals, but Alex Brower of Booth Street is serving as the public point person on the effort. Feel free to contact us at any time.
We aim to create a credit union for Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s 53212 zip code. Specifically, we may be open to anyone who lives, works attends school, or worships in the 53212 zip code, is a member of a cooperative business, headquartered here, or participates in a poverty-alleviation program here.
This effort stems out of a desire to see a financial institution for our neighborhood, created by our neighborhood. A lot of us have been waiting for an organization that will help us transform the way our economy works, and the credit union is one way that we can achieve that.
We are starting a Community Organizing Credit Union, which will provide financial services, help foster new cooperatives, and organize our community to stand up to the banksters and Wall Street.
The leadership of this effort is made up an Organizing Committee, which is made up of individuals from Harambee and Riverwest. You can be a part of this as well! Join our effort, or contact us today!
We are sponsored by the Riverwest Cooperative Alliance.
