Make Your Voice Heard


A strong middle class depends on strong credit unions


Dear Altra Member:
54% of Americans say credit unions are the best place for middle class people to deposit their money. They know credit unions keep our economy strong and provide a smart financial choice for consumers.
As we approach the 2016 Presidential Election, we want to make sure every Republican and Democratic candidate knows that too.
Unlike big banks who answer to Wall Street and return profits to their investors, credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives owned and operated by our members.

What makes us different?

  • We return savings to the middle class families we serve through higher interest rates on checking and savings accounts and lower interest on loans.
  • We focus on reinvesting in the local communities where we’re rooted.
  • We work to help small businesses grow and prosper close to home.


Altra and other credit unions are serving over 100 million members. Credit union members have a powerful voice; make your voice heard. Let’s make sure the candidates are talking about the economic issues middle class credit union members care about most.  


Please visit this special website to tweet a message or send an email to any presidential candidate you choose. It only takes a minute and you don't need to have a Twitter account.

Remind those who want to win the White House in 2016 that our nation will only succeed with a strong middle class. And a strong middle class needs strong credit unions.
