We’re taught that America is the land of opportunity, and that’s true. Unfortunately, opportunities were handed out to a select few at the expense of others. Historically, the lines have been drawn based on race. Institutional racism continues to harm all of us, regardless of ethnicity. This workshop will show you how your personal finances are affected and what action you can take to create generational wealth for you and your community.
