Working to recapitalize black and minority-owned banks across the country.

The #JusticeDeposits initiative is challenging churches, businesses, and individuals to simply open checking or savings accounts as a way to safely but intentionally help Black-owned Banks, making funds more accessible to Black and minority families and businesses.

COMMUNITY has been on an evolving journey of learning, understanding, listening, and acting to serve our sisters and brothers in the Black community. We’re thrilled to be taking a much needed next step through our #JusticeDeposits Initiative and we’re thrilled to invite you to partner with us in this way to recapitalize black and minority-owned banks across the country. Together, we can make a difference!
– Dave Ferguson, Lead Pastor, COMMUNITY

“The #JusticeDeposits and #JusticeCapital National Initiative has the potential of changing the economic landscape for millions of Black and Brown families including entrepreneurial business leaders across North America. This initiative can assist in balancing the huge economic disparities in a way that our nation has never seen before!”

“We can’t have a conversation about the long and sordid history of racism in America without addressing the profound and lasting economic disparities that were created by 246 years of slavery, 100+ years of Jim Crow, and more recent practices such as redlining, restrictive covenants, and strategic disinvestment. The #Justice Deposits Initiative had the potential to make a huge impact on black communities all around the nation. More capital for Black banks means more available capital for Black families who want to become homeowners, Black entrepreneurs seeking business loans, and consequently a more robust financial outlook for the next generation.” Listen to a podcast with Quentin.
