Project Preview: Reducing the Cost of Credit in African American Communities

Please join Prosperity Now for a webinar on Monday, July 10 from 2-3:00 pm EST to learn more about what we're planning to do in this new project and how your expertise in working with clients on managing debt can help. This webinar will feature members for the Applied Research and Racial Wealth Divide teams, including:
