The Road to Wealth: Free Financial Workshop
October 29, 2022-Sat | 9:30 AM-3:30 PM | The LOFT
Did you know that it's a myth that so many LGBTQ+ people are wealthy?
In fact, it's the opposite, according to Morningstar, "From the standpoint of income and wealth, LGBTQ people remain at a disadvantage relative to heterosexual people, on average. Average incomes are lower and poverty rates are higher, especially for transgender people and LGBTQ people of color. Ownership rates of financial assets, including retirement accounts and homes, is correspondingly lower."
Come and learn from The LOFT's Annual Sponsor, PRISM Planning and Solutions Group, and LOFT Business Partner, Ilene Amiel from Personal Affairs Administrator, Inc critical things you can do to increase your level of personal wealth and financial assets!

Idan Haguel’s smart satire illuminates the insidious ways privilege can unleash the prejudice within. The story focuses on Ben, who thinks of himself as an enlightened liberal and lives with his perfect boyfriend in a newly renovated apartment in a gritty, “up-and-coming” neighborhood in South Tel Aviv. This skillfully told parable about the mechanisms of gentrification raises an uncomfortable question: Are we as tolerant as we think we are?
