The Juntos Avanzamos–Together We Advance–designation recognizes credit unions that have demonstrated a strong commitment to serving and empowering Hispanic and immigrant consumers.

Overview

We’ve partnered with the Federation promote financial inclusion and asset building opportunities for the Hispanic and Noncitizen communities in the Northwest.

The immigrant population is vital to the economy, but often vulnerable to predatory financial service providers. Juntos Avanzamos credit unions help Hispanic and immigrant consumers achieve financial independence by providing affordable and responsible financial products and services. Today, the Juntos Avanzamos credit union network has grown to encompass 70 credit unions in 19 states and the District of Columbia, including three credit unions in the Northwest.
