Nominate a Local HeroIn 1995, Union Bank launched the Local Heroes program in San Francisco with public television station KQED to help demonstrate the bank’s ongoing commitment to the communities it serves and in celebration of cultural diversity. Partnering with public television stations throughout California, the bank designed the program to pay tribute to local heroes who are making a difference to enrich the lives of others by improving their workplace, profession, neighborhood, community, region and the world. In 2011, the Local Heroes program was expanded to reflect the very vibrant and diverse communities in which the bank conducts business, adding heroes for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month and, in San Diego, Disability Awareness Month.
