03.25.06 | 2006 HIP-HOP SUMMIT ACTION NETWORK ‘GET YOUR MONEY RIGHT’ FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT TOUR

The tour’s aim is to raise consciousness of youth on importance of financial literacy in response to growing debt in America.  The press asked last year, “Can Russell Simmons make debt consolidation hot?”  The answer, a resounding yes.  Following the tremendous success and positive feedback of the 2005 “Get Your Money Right” financial empowerment national tour, The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) is gearing up to launch the 2006 “Get Your Money Right” tour. The financial empowerment tour will kick off on March 25, 2006 at Wayne State University’s Bonstelle Theater in Detroit.  The 2006 tour will feature a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Benjamin Chavis, President and CEO of HSAN which will include Russell Simmons, Chairman of HSAN, hip-hop artists and financial specialists as well as review the “Get Your Money Right” workbook, being distributed in both English and Spanish.  This year, the tour will touch down on college campuses across the country, an ideal audience for its message on improving financial literacy.  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.
