YLI and MyPath would like to formally invite youth leaders to the 3rd Annual School For Economic and Financial Justice, funded by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. Over the past three years YLI and MyPath have spearheaded a movement of youth leaders in the Bay Area to take on significant anti-payday lending advocacy in San Mateo County, with two major policy victories in Daly City and South San Francisco. As we continue to take on local advocacy work the time to build a movement throughout the country in now! We will be partnering with the Center for Responsible Lending and California Reinvestment Coalition to provide the capacity building, education and training needed to fuel the federal movement.

The school will be held on March 28, 2015 (Saturday) from 10am-5pm. This will be a ONE day event. We will also provide meal costs. Transportation will not be covered.
