As many of you know our national partner, CFED is having their biennial conference next week, Sept. 28-30 in Washington, D.C. The conference brings together practitioners, advocates, community members, financial institutions, and researchers to help create a unified understanding of policies and programs that affect Americans, young and old. CFED's work make it possible for millions of people to achieve financial security and contribute to an opportunity economy. They scale innovative practical solutions that empower low- and moderate-income people to build wealth.
To highlight some of the content expected during the upcoming conference, the Indiana Assets & Opportunity Network will focus daily on a new asset-building topic in our blog. Each update is written by a coalition partner about topics that are important to Hoosier financial stability.
The topics include: a university offering ways for students to decrease debt and take ownership of their financial behaviors, closing the women’s wealth gap, credit card contracts being too complicated for many individuals, and the connection between health and wealth.
These are only a handful of topics that partners address across the state, but let’s start the conversation!
