Issues We Care About

Taking a stance for issues we are passionate about

For nearly 100 years, Amalgamated Bank has fought for a more just and sustainable world. We understand that inequity and injustice permeate our society and that we can live in a more equitable way with one another.

At Amalgamated, we recognize that historically marginalized communities live complex lives, where social and political issues intersect, at the same time compounding on each other. Issues are not siloed and can impact several people, groups, and organizations at one time. To reach a truly equitable and just world, it is important that we recognize the roles these overlapping dynamics play in our policies, activism, and organization.

Standing in solidarity with our clients and stakeholders, through our products, people, and internal culture is all part of ending this inequity. We are committed to contributing to the thousands of groups across the country actively working on dismantling systems of discrimination and oppression.

Issues we have taken a position on include:

It feels like ages since we have been able to come together. LGBTQ+ Pride, internationally recognized each June, coincides this year with a mass gathering of every other community, as many of us remove our masks and embrace friends and family for the first time in months.

The light at the end of the pandemic tunnel has gotten a little brighter recently, especially as the number of U.S. COVID-related hospitalizations continues to dwindle and the number of fully vaccinated people in the country reaches nearly 40% of the population.1

Amalgamated Bank was disappointed to hear of the Supreme Court’s decision to affirm a Trump Administration order that would allow employers to limit access to contraception under the Affordable Care Act. We joined an amicus brief before the ruling in support of universal access to contraception and condemn this ruling, which will affect an estimated 126,000 women.
