According to a report by Prosperity Now, it is expected that by the year 2053, Black American households will have a median wealth of zero. Given this alarming statistic, the mission of dfree® is focused on strategies to closing the racial wealth gap. To date, we have trained more than 6,000 leaders and served more than 50,000 families.
In our continuing efforts to provide the Black community with financial resources, proven strategies, and access to qualified professionals, dfree® is hosting a 3-day virtual financial festival experience called FINfe$t. This event is a follow-up to our 2020 successful Debt-a-Thon, when more than 1,200 people were exposed to outstanding speakers and connected to debt counselors and financial professionals that assisted them with their immediate financial needs. This year we have expanded our content and will feature musical performances, inspiring financial testimonies, comedy, and appearances by celebrities, influencers, and top financial experts. The audience will be entertained, inspired, and like last year, provided with opportunities to connect with financial experts about their specific financial needs live!
We look forward to engaging with you as we continue our mission to close the wealth gap, one family at a time.
