Encouraging Work and Savings in Communities of Color

From the Union League Club of Chicago:  We hear a panel discussion, on how to help grow the savings and incomes within communities of color — black, Hispanics, and Asians.  Often in poverty areas, the idea of saving and investing is foreign to both residents’ life experiences, and to anyone they know within the community.  And yet, working, saving and investing is exactly how families and communities can grow their wealth from one generation to the next.  We hear about the hurdles and strategies for getting the working poor to raise their standards of living. This panel was organized by AARP.
