This free event sponsored by VFW and Young Men Strong to promote educational and economic equity and social justice among Blacks, Browns, and Latinos.

There will be hundreds of vendors to encourage networking, workshops on financial literacy, home ownership, emotional wellness, and a session dedicated to Veterans with panel speakers. There are also free tickets to the Brooklyn Nets basketball game.

Pick Up Location

Logistics are still being worked out but the planned locations are the Bronx and Harlem
The registration numbers will determine where the greatest need is for pickup.

Example: if only 2-3 people register from the Bronx, then those 3 would need to go to the Harlem location for the bus, but if a good-sized group registers from the Bronx, there will be a pick location in the Bronx.
