OneUnited Bank and Visa Launch OneTransaction Campaign

OneUnited Bank and Visa Launch Onetransaction Campaign

[Los Angeles] – OneUnited Bank and Visa have launched the OneTransaction Campaign for Black History Month.  The campaign is designed to close the racial wealth gap. The OneTransaction Campaign includes a state-of-the-art, free virtual financial conference on Juneteenth (June 19, 2021).

In 2020, America was forced to recognize the impact of systemic racism, and the resulting racial wealth gap. According to Brookings, the net worth of a Black family is $17,150 compared to $171,000 for a white family. While public policy is critical to addressing the consequences of discrimination, public policy moves slowly.

OneUnited Bank encourages all Black Americans to focus on One Transaction in 2021.  One Transaction will increase your net worth. That transaction could be a will, life insurance, home ownership, a profitable business, automatic savings, an investment portfolio or an improved credit score.

Focusing on Closing the Racial Wealth Gap

The #OneTransaction Campaign encourages Black families to select One Transaction to accomplish in 2021. They will provide action steps to accomplish that transaction. “The reality is the racial wealth gap for each family can be closed by one strategic transaction,” says Kevin Cohee, Chairman & CEO of OneUnited Bank. “By encouraging our community to accomplish One Transaction in 2021, we can make financial literacy a core value of the Black community and create generational wealth.”

OneTransaction Virtual Financial Conference

The Campaign includes a free state-of-the-art #OneTransaction Virtual Financial Conference in partnership with Visa, to be held on June 19, 2021 or Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States.

The OneTransaction Conference includes expert presenters in business and personal finance.  Presenters include:

  • Tiffany Aliche, The Bugetnista, an award winning financial education teacher,
  • Sharon Epperson, Senior Personal Finance Correspondent for CNBC,
