Feb. 19, 2021 |  Economic Empowerment for All
Strategies & Tips to Homeownership, Saving, and Other Tools to Gain Financial Freedom
Economic empowerment greatly improves the quality of life. Economic Empowerment for All: Strategies & Tips to Homeownership, Saving, and Other Tools to Gain Financial Freedom addresses financial disparities facing the Black community. Get helpful information to positively shift financial gaps caused by racial oppression and discrimination.
Some white families historically have enjoyed the benefits of government support and tax policies to buy homes, start businesses, grow wealth, and prepare for retirement at a time when Blacks and others were largely excluded. By acknowledging historical trends and practices that suppressed economic empowerment among African Americans, we shift the conversation to how we can provide more access and information to marginalized communities. Learn how to move the community forward through economic empowerment!
Key discussion points:
– Address racial disparities in lending (What is being done to close the gap?
– Financial security for all: Saving & investing at every socio-economic level
– Affordable housing
– Maintain financial freedom during hardships
FREE, 12-1 p.m. (CST)
