In a groundbreaking piece that chronicles the connection between faith and daily needs, and contrasts the challenges of race and racism with debt and financial illiteracy, CNN dives deep into a topic I call the next civil rights issue, and a global silver rights empowerment tool and movement. Watch my partner and friend, Reverend Dr. Raphael Warnock, the 5th ever senior pastor of the historic Ebenezer Church in Atlanta, Georgia, the home of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as he clearly articulates the vision for our first-ever partnership to bring a HOPE Financial Literacy Empowerment Center into the framework of a house of faith.
Located next to the historic Ebenezer Church, and on the King Center grounds, the HOPE Center at Ebenezer will serve as the flagship anchor tenant for the coming Martin Luther King Sr. Community Service Center, which will be erected in honor of one they called "Daddy King." Without Daddy King, there would never have been a Dr. King, as Daddy King was both a civil rights leader and silver rights pioneer decades prior. More on his story to come.
A special thank you here to our founding partners of and for the HOPE Center at Ebenezer, which thus far include SunTrust Bank, Wells Fargo, State Farm Insurance, LPL Financial, MasterCard and the FINANCIAL SERVICES ROUNDTABLE in Washington, D.C.
More to come. Watch the video and share it with friends. A new movement is coming to a community near you.
Onward with HOPE
