Let’s seek to lift, rather than divide

A statement from Jeff Kennedy, CEO of TwinStar Credit Union

At TwinStar Credit Union we share in the grief, anger and fear caused by ongoing injustices against our friends in the Black community and toward people of color everywhere. News of the death of George Floyd and others has been devastating. We are all members of the same human family. No one should have to fear for their life because of the color of their skin.

We encourage our elected leaders and people of goodwill to urgently pursue meaningful civil reforms that ensure our common safety and strengthen our bonds and trust in each other. We call on all people to be more patient, more empathic, more understanding and more willing to lift, rather than divide. We extend our hands and offer our embrace in support of our Black neighbors, friends and co-workers as we work to create real change together.

Jeff Kennedy

Chief Executive Officer,
TwinStar Credit Union
