2006 Hip-Hop Summit Action Network 'Get Your Money Right' Financial Empowerment Tour Launches March 25
email quote::
"The "Get Your Money Right" tour will include stops in five additional cities, including April 22 in New York, May 20 in Miami, September 16 in Atlanta, September 30 in Los Angeles and October 14 in Dallas.

The agenda includes a focus on financial literacy, basics of banking, repairing and understanding credit scores, asset and wealth management, vehicle financing and home ownership. "Poverty and basic lack of knowledge must be challenged," emphasized Russell Simmons, Chairman of HSAN.

"Get Your Money Right' is more than a theme. It is an achievable goal when you have the right information. We have high aspirations, but we know to fulfill the aspirations of the hip-hop generation, we have to take the subjects of financial literacy and empowerment seriously and talk with youth in a manner appealing to them."
