On Saturday, April 21, The Featherstone Foundation, started by 2013 OSI Community Fellow, Lanaea Featherstone, and Cristo Rey will host “Mi Dinero, Mi Destino,” a free, financial education conference which will include topics such as budgeting and financial goal-setting, how to purchase a first home, and understanding interest rates and credit. A continental breakfast, lunch, and activities for children ages 5+ are all included. Workshops will be offered in Spanish with simultaneous English interpretation.
As part of her fellowship, Featherstone developed “Empowering Latinos One ‘Click’ at a Time” to provide computer literacy workshops and mentoring programs to help Latino immigrant parents become more adept at using computer technology. Learn more about her project here.
In October, Featherstone’s foundation was honored by the Associated Black Charities as an “Organization Making a Difference for Women,” at their 2017 Women on the Move event.
