On Tuesday, September 10, CUNA (in conjunction with the state trade associations) made a social media push in support of the Don’t Tax My Credit Union campaign.  The push yielded strong support from credit union supporters across the country with over 4,800 tweets in support of the tax exemption directed at Congress on that day alone.  To date, there have been over 900,000 twitter messages in support of the credit union tax exemption in addition to the almost 1,000,000 contacts that have been made to Congressional offices through emails and phone calls.
