As we near closer to the end of July many of us are still facing quarantine and putting ourselves out on the front lines of activism in so many different ways; Feminists, BLM supporters, health activists, financial literacy advocates. Whatever way you support the causes that matter, you’re making a difference in the world and everything you’re doing is of vital importance. This week we’re bringing to content centered around important issues to serve as a reminder of what’s important right now.
Nominations for the Plutus Awards closed out this week and we’ll be announcing the finalists on August 17th. You can join us for the Plutus Awards Live and online October 3rd to find out who wins and enjoy some really great programming our Plutus Awards team is putting together as we speak! We have some great sponsorships available for this year’s Plutus Awards ceremony which you can learn more about here: https://www.plutusawards.com/partner.

That brutality — let alone murder — is what’s lawless.” – I Pick Up Pennies
“Money-wise, the economic state of Black America in 2020 is a crying shame. That needs to be addressed, for sure. But for now, I want to talk about some of the things you can personally do to help fight racism.” – Jackie Beck
“Twice in ten years. That’s how often I stayed in the same teaching assignment for consecutive years. I volunteered for teacher moves, because I didn’t mind moving while most of my colleagues hated or feared it.” – Educator FI
“I know more women than I can count that let their male partners do the “big” and “important” financial tasks, like investing for retirement. There’s plenty o’ research to back up my observation: This study says married women take control of major financial decisions only 27% of the time.” – Her First $100k
