Description

The Southeast ADA Center, a project of the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University, invites you to a three-part webinar series, Show Me the Money! This informative three-part webinar series will explore topics including: creating a culture of financial inclusion and access; Money Smart, a financial education tool developed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC); and ABLE accounts. Our speakers include representatives of Regions Bank, the FDIC, and state ABLE programs.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has four foundational goals "equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities." In a letter to the “ADA@25: Economic Advancement and Financial Inclusion Summit,” former President George H.W. Bush stated, “Since the passage of the ADA, our country has made progress in ‘assuring equality of opportunity, full participation, Independent living in economic self-sufficiency.’ There remains, however, more work to be done to ensure the financial health and future of individuals living with disabilities.”

The Southeast ADA Center is committed to addressing the barriers to economic self-sufficiency and financial inclusion for people with disabilities. Equal opportunity must include: facility and virtual access to banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions; options to build the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed financial decisions; access to financial education and coaching; affordable and accessible financial services and products; inclusion in career pathways; and the ability to save and build assets.

Please join us on March 8, March 15, and March 22 for Show Me the Money!
