Wings Financial: Stop Sponsoring the MPD!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

The Minneapolis Police Department is responsible for the murder of George Floyd, as well as the deaths of many other people of color. In the days since the killing of George Floyd, the increasingly militarized MPD has continued to execute countless acts of violence against peaceful members of our community.

Wings Financial Credit Union is a member-owned non-profit headquartered in Apple Valley, Minnesota. They are meant to serve the people of Minneapolis and St. Paul. However, they are listed as a sponsor and long time supporter of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis - the non-profit led by Police Union President and white supremacist Bob Kroll.

This is a direct contradiction of Wings' supposed core values of Honesty & Integrity and Diversity & Inclusion. We as members and citizens refuse to allow our money to fund violence and white supremacy. 

It is time for us to call on Wings Financial: It is their duty to divest from the MPD immediately.

Join us in demanding that Wings follow the lead of organizations like the University of Minnesota and publicly denounce the MPD’s racism and violence, while also calling for justice and accountability. If Wings does not act, we will divest from them and move our dollars over to an institution that knows that Black Lives Matter.
