I believe the climate is ready and receptive to closing the gap – that is, the wealth gap between African Americans and our white counterparts.
ATLANTA, GA, August 05, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Southern Tax Preparation & Services is an accounting firm located in Atlanta, GA that has partnered with local financial experts to create the Closing the Gap Virtual Tour. The Virtual Tour is a week-long event that teaches attendees vital information to become financially literate and ultimately close the wealth gap between African Americans and their counterparts. The purpose of the event is to provide viable, practical, and accessible information to the African American community that one may otherwise never receive because of the color of their skin, their income level, or their social status. With the partnership of several other professionals and influencers who share a common mission with Southern Tax Prep through spreading financial literacy around the globe, Closing the Gap is sure to be an effective and impactful event
Closing the Gap will consist of daily presentations from August 10-13, 2020, by various influencers on different facets of financial literacy such as budgeting, credit, investing, and business ownership, that will educate the African American community on individually and collectively to close the wealth gap. Closing the Gap will climax on August 14, 2020 with a panel discussion discussing the color of money, racism, and laws and regulations.
"We've seen a plethora of companies make diversity and inclusion statements to show their solidarity with the African American community. However, in my opinion, these statements were only made in fear of losing the black dollar as many African Americans have begun and continue to spend their dollars with black owned businesses. As a result, I believe the climate is ready and receptive to closing the gap – that is, the wealth gap between African Americans and our white counterparts." – Jasmine Young, Founder of Closing the Gap Event
