Consumer protection is a serious issue for financial inclusion advocates. When working with low-income people who are often financially inexperienced, it's critical that when they do seek out financial services, they have a positive interaction. While many governments are expanding their consumer protection policies, there is often a significant gap between what's required by law and what's happening in practice. Mystery shopping is one research technique that enables policy makers to truly understand what's happening in the financial product sales process. In India and Mexico, staff proved unwilling to offer low-cost savings accounts, even when they were a good match for customers. In Kenya, banking agents skimmed extra money and took sensitive account information from custoemrs. In Mexico, prospective customers received different amounts of information about the costs of financial products depending on how sales staff perceived their experience level. And across the board, financial product information remains difficult to understand and explain.

Gary Brucker, Program Director for Courage for Youth Association and Lauri Swann Hunt, founder of Ollibean, are guests at our roundtable this week. The topic we are discussing is the notion that inclusion is more than a program and is based on attitudes and belief systems. In addition, it is important that schools must foster these attitudes through emotional and relational development in students. This is a discussion you won't want to miss!
A Man approached a Parishioner and said:
“Can I come to your church? I'm gay."
If not, why? Are Christians afraid of what others might think, say or do? Are they afraid they might somehow disobey or disappoint God by loving and welcoming gay people into their faith communities? If that were the case, I couldn’t step foot in the church—because I am a sinner. It’s not that I was a sinner. I am a “notorious sinner” who is immersed in the grace Jesus sacrificed His life to provide for me—just like every Christ-follower.
Millions of gay people around the world are also deeply religious. In some of the major religions, lay organizations have grown up to help serve LGBT parishioners who might struggle to reconcile their identities with the teachings of their faith traditions. As public support for marriage equality continues to increase, support for the LGBT community within religious bodies is also on the rise. Our guests this evening come with different perspectives on why they support or do not support the Welcoming, Affirming movement of "Inclusion" of the LGBTQ community in our houses of faith.
The inclusion is still largely an illusion for many working-class and under-priveleged Afro-Descendants. Join us as we expose the manipulation techniques used to keep us dormant as well as the solutions and actions we are taking and need to take to make a change that will improve our positions in life. Open discussion (Round-Table Format) is when everyone that tunes in can chime in at anytime by pressing the number #1 on the touch pad of our phones or just listen in........You dont wanna miss this show !
