Event description

Description

White Americans with a college degree are on average three times as wealthy as black Americans with the same credential.

White boys who grow up rich are likely to remain that way. Black boys raised at the top, however, are more likely to become poor than to stay wealthy in their own adult households.


Black men raised in the millionaire households are just as likely to be incarcerated as White men whose families earned an average of $36,000 a year.

We are continuously inundated with these negative statistics. The Northern Virginia Urban League Young Professionals Network is working to help families defeat these negative predictions. Join these at Black-owned Della J's Delectables for a discussion led by individuals who have worked hard to build wealth for their families. You'll leave with some important action items to start building wealth for your (future) family now!

National Day of Empowerment is a National Urban League Young Professionals (NULYP) initiative geared toward supporting minority entrepreneurs, minority owned businesses as well as providing education to empower young professionals and our community at large.
