What is Juntos Avanzamos?

Juntos Avanzamos, which translates to “Together We Advance,” is a national designation for credit unions dedicated to serving and empowering Hispanic and immigrant consumers – helping them navigate the U.S. financial system and providing safe, affordable, and relevant financial services. Juntos Avanzamos credit unions employ bilingual, culturally-competent staff and leadership, accept alternative forms of ID and treat all of their members with respect, regardless of immigration status. There are nearly two dozen credit unions in the GoWest region who currently hold a Juntos Avanzamos designation as well as regional chapter of Juntos Avanzamos designated credit unions in the Pacific Northwest.


Impact on the Community

By breaking down barriers to access and fostering financial literacy and stability, this special designation shows a credit union’s mission to uplift entire communities to create a brighter, more equitable future for all.

Since the national launch of the Juntos Avanzamos network in 2015, the program now has a presence in 29 states, serving more than 12 million consumers and delivering responsible financial products at over 141 credit unions spanning 1,196 community branches.


Looking Ahead

Receiving the Juntos Avanzamos designation is a cause for celebration. Landings and Juntos Avanzamos will host a proclamation ceremony to commemorate the distinction with employees, members and the communities they serve.
