Village Financial Cooperative is an emerging Black-led credit union on the Northside of Minneapolis, with a mission to ignite a financial renaissance within the local Black community and beyond through cooperative economic practice. Our members believe in reversing the racial disparities of our state and come from all backgrounds and walks of life, including anyone who lives, works, worships or goes to school in Hennepin or Ramsey County.
Black folks who crossed the Middle Passage in America fought vigorously for their freedom and that fire to be liberated, both socially and economically, continues to burn. Join us for a kickback to commemorate Juneteenth on Thursday, June 13, 5:30-8 p.m., at 2515 Third St. N., Minneapolis.
In 2019 alone, Village Financial Cooperative has made headway in securing a physical location for the credit union, gained important partnerships, and held a number of important conversations on what building a Black cooperative economics system in the Twin Cities means. Now we’d like to celebrate these accomplishments and what’s to come with our members. So enjoy a good time with us, hear some exciting news about where we’re headed, and begin the festivities of Freedom Day with us.
