The Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment’s “Get Your Money Right” National Tour, now in its second successful year, brings together the powerful combination of celebrities and Chrysler Financial experts to speak to students and community members about the importance of financial literacy. The topics to be covered include the basics of banking, home ownership, repairing bad credit and understanding credit scores, entrepreneurship, vehicle financing and more. The “Get Your Money Right” includes stops in three additional cities, including September 16 in Atlanta, September 30 in Los Angeles and October 14 in Dallas.

The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN), Chairman Russell Simmons and President/CEO Dr. Benjamin Chavis have addressed many important topics with the hip-hop community over the past five years, from public education and freedom of speech to voting. On Saturday, May 20 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at Florida Memorial University’s A. Chester Robinson Athletic Center, located at 15800 NW 42nd Avenue, Miami Gardens, FL, HSAN, Chrysler Financial and Anheuser-Busch, Inc. bring a Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment to Miami. Doors open at 12noon.

The Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment is a grassroots effort to help engage young people in discussions about the importance of personal finance. “Hip-hop is about improving the quality of life for all people,” emphasized Russell Simmons.  “It is our mission to raise the level of consciousness among young adults about the importance of financial literacy and empowerment. We are committed to helping people get themselves out of poverty.”

"Miami is one of the major centers of hip-hop culture,” declared Dr. Chavis. ” Given the city's diversity and strong traditions of musical genius, the Miami Hip-Hop Summit will be one of the most diverse and culturally stimulating Summits of the 2006 tour.  Our focus is on financial literacy and empowerment in the context of celebrating the evolution of hip-hop in Miami and throughout the Southeast region of the United States, as well as across Latin America.”

“The Hip Hop Summit Action Network proudly acknowledges the contributions of Latinos to the evolution of Hip Hop,” commented Jasmin Frangul, Director of Hispanic Affairs for Rush Communications.  “The ''Get Your Money Right'' tour utilizes the power of education which transcends racial barriers to nurture the minds of our young people and help them to make better choices for their financial futures.” The “Get Your Money Right” workbook, which will be given to all participants, is available in both English and Spanish and is downloadable on the www.hsan.org site.

Dr. Albert Smith, President of Florida Memorial University the educational partner of the Summit, will give opening remarks. Media partners for the Miami Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment are Clear Channel’s Power 103.5 The Beat WMIB and MEGA 94.9FM WMGE. Community partners include the Miami Urban League and Historically Black Colleges and Universities Network.
