Financial justice and human rights for immigrants
We commit to work each day toward our vision for an equitable and tolerant world – one that is fully inclusive, racially and gender just, and environmentally restorative. Our commitment to justice, one of the core values that guides our organization, remains strong as we build a fair, inclusive, and prosperous economy for all.
At present we must be loud and clear: immigrant rights are human rights, and all people deserve dignity and safety.
As we work to empower Beneficial State Bank customers, to finance a just economy and healthy planet for all people, and to change the banking system for good, we actively support campaigns at the intersection of immigrant and financial security.
Some examples of how we working to defend the human rights and financial security of immigrant communities include:
- Perspective: Everyone counts in the 2020 census
- Perspective: We need retirement systems and public benefit programs that don’t exclude immigrants
- Perspective: Credit scores have nothing to do with citizenship
