Creating Opportunity for Massachusetts Families
Financial insecurity and inequality is at an all-time high,
especially in Massachusetts
. Far too many families feel trapped, even as our economy strengthens.
Advancing financial security requires access to quality financial education and resources. However, that is not enough. Removing systemic barriers - policies, behaviors and practices that are ingrained in our structures that restrict opportunity - is necessary to improve the environment people are operating within.
Enactment of pending state legislation will right these wrongs and invest in our our most valuable resource - our residents - which creates more prosperous communities.
