Black Money Matters LA



Get Involved. Spread the Word. Stand with the Black Community

Our lives matter. Our dollars matter. Black Money Matters.

We stand on a history and a foundation of great leaders and civil rights leaders who underscored the importance of Black people harnessing their spending power. It is critical for the Black community to utilize our $1.2 trillion in annual spending power to create jobs and build wealth in our community.


It’s time to come together as a community to harness that power.


On Saturday July 23, 2016 from 2-5pm, we will be hosting #BlackMoneyMattersLA at our Crenshaw branch (3683 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016), and invite the community to be part of the Black Money Matters movement.


This event is a positive and exciting opportunity for Los Angeles’ urban community to participate in the nationwide push to #BankBlack. It will feature food trucks, free giveaways, a personal meet-and-greet with the owners of OneUnited Bank, Teri Williams and Kevin Cohee, and engaging fellowship around the #BlackMoneyMatters movement. We hope you will join us and be part of this fellowship.
