For those working to ensure that everyone in Washtenaw County has a clear path to financial stability, wealth and prosperity.

The majority of Americans do not have a few thousand dollars to weather an unexpected illness, job loss, or accident.
Most Americans, including 80 percent of people of color, are locked out of the mainstream economy, unable to add their talents, work, and dreams, unable to share in the bounty of this economy. Without a nest egg most Americans cannot invest in their future—and the future of our country—through saving, entrepreneurship, education, and homeownership. We can—and we should—do better.

At this intimate event, Bob will motivate his audience with credible evidence as to how to unleash the productive capacity of common Americans to build wealth, start and grow businesses, buy and keep homes, go to college/postsecondary education and become skilled workers in demand and discuss how a few simple policy changes would address wealth inequality—and build a better economy and a stronger country for us all.
