Take a Knee

Sign Up!

In an unprecedented move, OneUnited Bank, the largest Black owned bank in America, unveils the “Take A Knee” Campaign with a stunning masterpiece, Last Man Standing, by internationally acclaimed artist Addonis Parker. The protest art evokes the importance and burden of activism in America, featuring three football players kneeling during the national anthem and a flag symbolizing the Black community in distress. We are taking the #BankBlack Movement to the next level!

 

We will make a donation to the American Civil Liberties Union or ACLU and BMe Community in honor of Leon Ford, a BMe Community Genius who is a survivor of police brutality, for each new customer that opens a checking account during the 9-week Campaign.* Here are FAQs for more information.
