“We want to see Black families thrive financially, and are committed to finding new ways to reach
people with information we know will impact — not just individuals, but entire generations — if
utilized,” said Justin Grant, executive director of Community Development for Advancing Black
Pathways at JPMorgan Chase.
“We’re bringing the full force of our firm, in partnership with trusted experts, to empower communities across the county and demystify the path to building wealth over time.”
“Financial intelligence is not something I was taught in school or in my community growing up,
but it has been one of the most important tools throughout my life and career. Today, it is my
mission to help close the racial wealth gap through education and empowerment. It’s amazing to
partner with JPMorgan Chase, an organization that is committed to supporting and educating
Black communities across the country through programs like the Advancing Black Wealth Tour,”
said Daymond John.
“We are building the next generation of wealthy families by partnering with JPMorgan Chase to
connect participants with industry experts and business leaders like ourselves,” said Dr. Lynn
Richardson and MC Lyte.
“This initiative is where financial leaders are created and empowered, and where wealth building capacity is expanded!”
