Guest Op-Ed: Let’s Give Dignity A Chance: Two observations and five takeaways | Operation HOPE Blog

by Lutfey Siddiqi Atlanta, GA – December 7, 2012 Global Financial what Summit?? This was the most oft-repeated reaction to the event held on the 15th of November 2012 in Atlanta Georgia – the Global Financial Dignity Summit.  Hosted by two larger-than-life personalities straddling two generations, John Hope Bryant and Ambassador Andrew Young, this conference was headlined by US Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and proved to be an innovative and impactful gathering of business, social and political stakeholders focused on economic development. My wife Deborah and I had travelled the furthest to be there, at the invitation of John who is a fellow member of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leader community. John Hope Bryant exudes a blend of energy and eloquence that gives him the stage-presence of an Obama with the sensitivity of a Bill Clinton. Together with the understated Professor from Finland Pekka Himanen and the telegenic Crown Prince HRH Haakon of Norway, John founded the Global Dignity movement in 2006. Internationally active and with the hands-on involvement of all three, this movement is based on the premise that every human being has the right to lead a dignified life and as a corollary, the right to access resources to fulfill one’s potential. Specially designed “dignity sessions” are held in underprivileged schools to affirm self-worth and confidence not only in the way that individuals carry themselves but also in the way that they relate to each other, often in the presence of conflict. The Global Financial Dignity Summit sought to apply this overarching framework to our current economic challenge – hence the unusual title.

John Hope Bryant "Silver Rights" Quote of the Day

"When you transform a neighborhood to become a 700-credit score community, liquor stores become covenient stores, and title lenders, payday lenders and rent-to-own stores become credit unions and community banks."

The New and Improved Operation HOPE Mission Statement: Silver Rights Empowerment for All

Operation HOPE gives people the dignity, resources and the opportunity to achieve a level of self-determination in their lives. Operation HOPE is "the private banker to the working poor, the underclass, and the struggling middle class," and the impact of our work can be felt on-the-ground, everywhere we operate.  Our mission is 'silver rights,' or making free enterprise and capitalism work for all.  Financial literacy is the tool, financial dignity is the goal and financial inclusion is the way.   Most impressive, are the results.  Our Banking on Our Future division, focused on keeping the most at risk youth from repeating the cycles of poverty and dispair that has trapped so many in their families and communities by teaching them basic financial literacy, or what we call "the global language of money."       Our HOPE Business In A Box/Gallup HOPE Index division, focused on inspiring a generation of young people to become future American assets of economic energy, small business and entrepreneurship.                                                                                          Our HOPE Financial Dignity Centers, where we approve clients day one, subject to the resolution of their primary denial factors, and raise credit scores on average 120 points over 18 months of active counseling. We call it our 700 Credit Scores Initiative.           Our HOPE Coalition America division, which is the national partner with FEMA around emergency financial disaster preparedness, response and recovery, or the "economic Red Cross" for the nation.  HCA responded to and served more than 200,000 survivors following Hurricane Katrina, and we are responding to Hurricane Sandy now.         Finally, HOPE Government Relations & Public Policy, and HOPE Forums advance responsible public policy and help to shape engaged public opinion.  The recent HOPE Global Financial Dignity Summit featuring US Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, with...
