Transcript HOUSTON AREA FEMINIST CREDIT UNION Feminists in the Houston area, including members of the Houston chapter of NOW, Northwest NOW, Women's Political Caucus, and the Coalition of Labor Union Women, are working to establish our own feminist credit union. A credit union is a cooperative savings and loan association owned by people with a common bond or tie between them. Credit unions can be established with relatively little capital by groups such as the employees of a firm or feminists in the women's movement. Members of credit unions own shares (deposits) for which they receive dividends (generally around 5$) and may apply for loans at a much lower interest rate than that charged by profit-making institutions* In a federally-chartared credit union all deposits are fully insured up to $40.000, just as in any bank or savings and loan. In other words, credit unions are good, safe places to save and to borrow money. Feminist credit unions, which already have opened in nine cities throughout the U.S.A., are something special. Credit unions are democratically controlled by their membership. That means we can provide women with the credit opportunities that discrimination has denied them for so long. We can help women—single, married, separated, or divorced, old or young, employed In a paying job or busy running a home—establish credit in their own names, buy a car, consolidate other loans, or pay for legal or medical expenses. We can help finance the growth and development of women's enterprises, such as the feminist theater 30on to open in Houston. We have begun the process of applying for a federal charter. We need your time, ideas, and enthusiasm. The more local feminist.* groups which affiliate from the beginning, the more successful we will be. Participating organizations incur absolutely no legal or financial obligation, but they have the right to set policy and determine what our credit union will be. We are pleased to announce our first formal affiliation—the Northwest chapter of NOW. Soon we oxpcct to ask for pledges—your expression of the intention to become a member and open an account once the credit union receives its charter. If you would like more information, or to help out, call Laura, 528-3631. We meet regularly at the Women's Center at 3602 Milam. A free booklet on organizing a federal credit union (NCUA 8OO7) can be obtained from the Regional Director, National Credit Union Administration, 205 W. Ninth Street, 7th floor, Austin, Texas 78701.
