Dr. Boyce, Ryan Mack and Leading Black Experts Launch the “Less Talk, More Action” Economic Empowerment Tour

 

The “Less Talk…More Action” Economic Empowerment Tour (“LTMA”), sponsored by the George Soros Open Society Institute, focuses on using financial literacy as a primary tool of empowerment for the Black community. However, LTMA has expanded the traditional definition of financial literacy to also include unemployment, incarceration, and education in the Black community. Credit repair, planning for retirement, budgeting, and other crucial/traditional measures of financial literacy all need to have a stronger presence if African Americans are to advance economically. However, high incarceration rates, low educational performance, and high unemployment rates are also severe problems of the Black community which continue to plague our bottom line.
