We will be closed on Friday, July 3 in observance of Independence Day.

PWCU closed in observance of Juneteenth

Dear Point West members,

Point West Credit Union will be closed this Friday, June 19, 2020 in observance of Juneteenth, which marks the day in 1865 that news of the abolition of slavery reached the westernmost slave state of Texas — two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation – and is today observed across the country as a day to celebrate and elevate the history and achievements of the Black experience in America.

The credit union recognizes the continued systemic inequity and injustice here locally and across the nation rooted in the original enslavement of Black people, and we accept that observing Juneteenth is but a small step toward acknowledging the unique and difficult experience of our Black community. We will use this day as an organization to honor the strength and resiliency of our Black neighbors, businesses, friends and family, and reflect on the hard and necessary work we must continue to do, to dismantle systems of oppression.

Our community is richer for its diversity of people and voices. While closed, we encourage our team and cooperative to engage in learning, celebrations, conversations and actions that support Black voices, history, culture and organizations. Point West will continue its investments in services, programming and partnerships to reduce barriers, build wealth and financially empower our Black community and the marginalized communities we serve.

We remain grateful for your membership and support, and we thank you for standing with us, continuing to create an inclusive and equitable credit union and community.

Cooperatively,

Amy Nelson, President/CEO


Estimados miembros de Point West,

Point West estará cerrado este viernes 19 de junio, 2020 en honor al 15 de junio, que marca el día en 1865 en que las noticias sobre la abolición de la esclavitud llegaron a Texas, el estado esclavista más occidental dos años después de que el presidente Abraham Lincoln firmó la Proclamación de Emancipación. Hoy se observa en todo el país como Juneteenth, un día para celebrar y elevar la historia y los logros de la experiencia Negra en los Estados Unidos.

Point West reconoce la continua inequidad e injusticia sistémicas aquí localmente y en todo el país enraizadas en la esclavitud original de los Negros, y aceptamos que observar Juneteenth es solo un pequeño paso para reconocer la experiencia única y difícil de nuestra comunidad Negra. Utilizaremos este día como organización para honrar la fuerza y ​​la resistencia de nuestros vecinos, negocios, amigos y familiares Negros, y reflexionar sobre el trabajo duro y necesario que debemos continuar para desmantelar los sistemas de opresión.

Nuestra comunidad es más rica por su diversidad de personas y voces. Mientras estamos cerrados, animamos a nuestro equipo y cooperativo a participar en el aprendizaje, celebraciones, conversaciones y acciones que apoyan las voces Negras, la historia, la cultura y las organizaciones.  Point West continuará sus inversiones en servicios, programación y asociaciones para reducir barreras, crear riqueza y empoderar financieramente a nuestra comunidad Negra y a las comunidades marginadas a las que servimos

Seguimos agradecidos por su membresía y apoyo, y le agradecemos por estar con nosotros, continuando a crear una cooperativa de crédito y una comunidad inclusiva y equitativa.

Cooperativamente

Amy Nelson, Presidenta/Directora Ejecutiva
