On Tuesday, April 5, FSI took part in the 2016 Financial Literacy Day on Capitol Hill. Organized by the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, the event featured over 50 organizations, showcasing their own financial literacy programs and resources, and kicks off National Financial Literacy Month.
National Financial Literacy Month highlights the importance of financial literacy and raises awareness on the need for financial education. For this month’s theme, Jump$tart President and CEO Laura Levine asked attendees “to envision a financially literate future.”
The event featured remarks from various members of Congress and other leaders. Co-chairs Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) spoke at the event and attended an open lunch to talk to attendees about issues of importance to the community.
FSI is proud to be a sponsor for Financial Literacy Day and we look forward to continuing to find ways to leverage our members’ expertise in support of financial literacy efforts across the country.
