Bill J. Priest Adult Education & Literacy Program
1402 Corinth St, Dallas, Texas 75215
For years we have seen Dallas continue to raise its profile as a center of business, entertainment, and innovation. Fortunes have been made, and buildings continue to tower high above the city creating impressive skyscapes and a testament to the massive pockets of wealth and industry. This and much more has contributed to Dallas being nicknamed 'Impact City'. In spite of these various indicators of progress though, something is missing.
The impact is being experienced by a precious few in the city. A recent study confirms what many have known and felt: Dallas ranks dead last of major cities when measuring economic and racial inclusion. That reality has presented a multitude of challenges for various communities. It is a staggering reality with dire consequences, but it also one that we at Southern Dallas Progress CDC are determined to change.
We are inviting you to partner with us for our Financial Literacy Symposium. We will have three cohorts that will focus on various areas of empowerment, including finance, entrepreneurship, and education. Each cohort will cover a specific age range with cohort one covering late elementary to high school, cohort two covering college students, and cohort three covering adults.
There is a work to be done in this city, and we are honored to be a part of making a difference. With the presence of your business at this event, we hope to provide greater opportunity and information to bridge the gap of the impact that occurs in the lives of the citizens of Dallas.
