Banks with OneUnited
New Britain, CT
Why did you move your money to a black-owned bank?
Well, I was with Wells Fargo and they are so unethical. With the NoDAPL and Injustice Boycott movements, I moved from there and chose a BLACK bank.
What has been your experience with banking black?
It has been just fine. I had a bit of an issue when I first signed up, but now it has been just fine. I use it only for my savings account because I am just not the type of person who feels comfortable not having a physical bank for my checking cash. I feel great being able to put aside extra money and knowing my people are taking care of it for me.
What advice do you have, or what would you tell someone, to encourage them to #BankBlack?
Just do it. The Black banks are no different from any other except that today, they are still pioneers. I'm proud of every Black person involved in these banks and am so happy this is going out into the world. Just a few years ago in college, the idea of a Black bank was nonexistent for me, despite them existing. So JOIN US. Why not?!?
