SAINT PAUL, Minn. - April 12, 2023 - PRLog -- Planting People Growing Justiceā„¢ Leadership Institute (PPGJLI) founder, Dr. Artika Tyner, announced that the non-profit organization is holding a Financial Literacy Learning Festival in recognition of Financial Literacy Capability Month.

The unique event will be held on Saturday, April 15, 2023 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. CST. The Literacy Learning Festival takes place at the Rondo Community Library, located at 461 Dale St. N. Individuals can register to reserve their spot for the free event online.

During the fun, interactive and family-friendly event, attendees will learn about budgeting, investing and financial wellness. A catered lunch by D Lee's Cuisine will be provided and book giveaways will be held. The Festival is being held in partnership with U.S. Bank and co-sponsored by Abdur Razzaq Counseling & Social Architecture, JK Movement, and Irreducible Grace Foundation.

April of each year was originally designated as National Financial Literacy Month in 2004 and later changed to National Financial Capability Month. The focus is on financial literacy, providing individuals with access to financial education and tools, and ensuring an understanding of financial services and products.

Knowledge of personal finance has declined significantly over the years. According to Annuity.org statistics, only 25 states require a financial literacy or economics course to graduate. The majority of American teens (75%) lack confidence in their knowledge of personal finance. 25% of Americans say they don't have anyone they can ask for trusted financial guidance.

Financial literacy directly impacts quality of life. A lack of knowledge about financial matters prevents people from making good financial decisions, paying off debt, saving, and planning for retirement. It hinders social mobility, prevents wealth accumulation, facilitates poverty, and allows individuals to fall prey to fraud and scams.

The Financial Literacy Learning Festival (https://www.ppgjli.org/financial-literacy-festival-2023) being conducted by PPGJLI (www.ppgjli.org) is vitally important, even for those that think they have an understanding of their finances. The Festival is a fun way for anyone to begin or continue their journey to financial literacy.
