RAINBOW PUSH WALL STREET PROJECT, JANUARY 13-15, TIME FOR A FINANCIAL PARADIGM SHIFT

If it’s January, it must be time for Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Wall Street Project. And if you haven’t already done so, this is the time to register and get your business cards dusted off, your resumes ready and your business suits out of mothballs, because you just might meet your next employer there.

Below isthe basic information on the upcoming events being held at the Sheraton Hotel in Manhattan, 53rd and 7th Avenue. For further information or to register go on line an follow the prompts.

The concept of THE WALL STREET PROJECT was originated by Rev. Jesse Jackson when he realized that racism extended beyond segregation of neighborhoods, jobs and schools; it also encompassed economics (read MONEY) as well. Realizing that there was indeed a need for comprehensive involvement on the part of Black people in the realm of money and economic parity, he held the first Wall Street Project at the World Trade Center.

However, since 2008, it has never been more blatantly pointed up than in the past year during the aftermath of massive economic down turns, toxic mortgages, job shortages, lay offs and firings that ran over the Black community -- nationally and internationally -- like a mack truck on a mission.

Not only does the Black community financial literacy from the most elementary to the most advanced level, but we need to develop some serious "con-solidarity" (my word) -- a means by which we amalgamate our efforts to develop our own on-going financial institutions.

Hopefully this is what will be provided over the next few days that the WALL STREET PROJECT is in town. If it isn’t then perhaps you might want to come with some of your own ideas in order to help the project in the establishment of such a protocol. One which links our Main Street to our own new version of “Wall Street”. Where we develop our own mutual funds, triple tax free municipal bond funds; credit unions; home buying protocols. Art there some direct business linkages that can be developed between African Americans, Africans, Afri-Caribbeans, South Amercians, etc? that would be of mutual benefit to us all? These are some the burning questions that need to be answered. Our paradigm shift should be part and parcel of the upcoming Wall Street Project.

In the mean time, as always, there are plenty of opportunities and options for networking and uniting. See you there.
