together we can.
together we will.

The War on Poverty was first coined under former President Lyndon B. Johnson's presidency in 1964. Decades later, grave statistics still lead us to believe the fight is not over. The Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 clearly states, "The United States can achieve its full economic and social potential as a nation only if every individual has the opportunity to contribute to the full extent of his capabilities and to participate in the workings of our society. It is, therefore, the policy of the United States to eliminate the paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty in this Nation by opening to everyone the opportunity for education and training, the opportunity to work, and the opportunity to live in decency and dignity" (Economic Opportunity Act, 1964). It is with deep sadness we remind you, poverty and wealth equity are grave concerns for our country. While we can't solve all problems in all communities, we pledge to support the Carolinas with the tools and resources our communities need to grow, thrive and afford opportunities needed to sustain community living through asset ownership, policy and advocacy, and using entrepreneurship as a tool to build wealth. "Income inequality increased by 1.2 percent between 2020 and 2021", according to the Income in the United States Income Report 2021.

If we band together to research and provide research-based, concrete solutions, we can change the financial inequities for generations to come. Our mission is to empower low-wealth communities to improve their financial wellness.
