Join us during the 2018 MLK Days of Service for Sunday Supper, a conversation about how civic engagement can spark momentum toward financial security at The Junior League of Memphis at 3475 Central Ave. on Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018, from 2 – 4 p.m.
Sunday Supper, a program of Points of Light, is inspired by Dr. King’s vision of people creating community across race, class, and faith. Sunday Supper encourages people to gather and discuss issues that affect their communities and families. These conversations can also increase racial cultural understanding, promote unity and inspire people into further action. Invite your friends, family, and neighbors to your Sunday Supper.
A form of civic engagement, conversations about pressing topics are important because they are often the starting point for change. Financial security is the peace of mind that comes with being able to meet your expenses every week or month as well as being able to save money to cover emergencies and eventually meet financial goals. Feeling financially secure is an important component of thriving communities and affects the health and education of families in our neighborhoods. Yet, financial security is not a certainty for every person in America, and the ability for individuals to improve their income is becoming more difficult to attain. Join us as we start the conversation on the topic of financial insecurity in America.
During this free event, we will also have time for students/families to start and complete their 2018-19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application.
