Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Manager of State Outreach Tylik McMillan has been invited to the White House to meet with Vice President Kamala Harris Tuesday. McMillan has been tapped to discuss community mobilization and financial access and inclusion for men of color.
“The opportunity to succeed, to hope for a better life and freedom of opportunity requires capital,” said McMillan. “But in the United States, access to capital for individuals and business owners is uneven. The compounding effects of decades of exclusionary policies and programs have contributed to the wealth gap, and we have an opportunity to identify new ways to accelerate financial well-being for all.”
McMillan also shared brief remarks prior to the introduction of President Joe Biden before his speech at the National Action Network annual breakfast in Washington, D.C., honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Monday.
McMillan previously served as the Senior Policy Advisor for the National Action Network, which is one of the nation's leading civil rights organizations working in the spirit and tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to promote the modern civil rights agenda. He has been quoted by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, and has been recognized as a Bloomberg 50 One to Watch. McMillan joined CUNA in January.
