HSAN “Get Your Money Right” Financial Empowerment National Tour to Kick Off in March

Russell Simmons and the Hip-Hop Action Summit Action Network have announced plans to kick off its “Get Your Money Right” Financial Empowerment National Tour at Texas Southern University in Houston on March 3rd. The tour, now in its third year, serves to educate young people about the fundamentals of personal finance. Dr. Benjamin Chavis, co-chairman of HSAN, will lead a panel discussion, which will also include Russell, various hip-hop artists and financial specialists. The panel will also review the HSAN “Get Your Money Right” workbook which will be available in both English and Spanish. “Hip-hop is about eliminating poverty and ignorance and we have found a creative and effective method of raising awareness about the importance of financial literacy,” Simmons said. “We are helping youth and young adults to fulfill their aspirations and lay a solid financial foundation for their future.” In addition to the Houston date, the tour will also touch down in Detroit, Greensboro, Washington D.C., Miami and Atlanta throughout the year. Chrysler Financial and Anheuser-Busch are both sponsoring the event and more info is available at
