Assets & Opportunity National Week of Action

The first-ever Assets & Opportunity National Week of Action took place from January 25-29. Our goal for the Week of Action was to call attention to the issues of economic insecurity and inequality that too many families across this country face, while highlighting the successful solutions that create an opportunity economy in which everyone has the chance to get ahead.

With your help, the Week of Action was a huge success! Nearly 2 million users saw Week of Action content online, while more than 1,500 people were engaged in one of the three events we hosted that week. These and a host of other victories show that when we come together, we can accomplish a great deal.

Getting Involved in the National Week of Action

Here are some of the ways people participated in the first-ever National Week of Action:

  • Use the data, tools and resources in the 2016 Assets & Opportunity Scorecard to illustrate the many ways that families across the country are struggling to get ahead.
  • Use and share social media toolkits (links to toolkits for individual days in the expandable menu below) to help raise awareness about solutions that build credit, rein in predatory lending, help families save for college and put the EITC within reach for more households.
  • Participate in a webinar to mark the national release of the 2016 Assets & Opportunity Scorecard on January 25.
  • Join any of our events (links in the expandable menu below) to learn more about the role you can play in building financial security.
