The Economic Justice Project (EJP) is a financial literacy and empowerment project intended to help low- to moderate-income individuals and families combat poverty and take command of their financial futures by providing them with the knowledge and skills to do so. The main purpose of the project is to provide educational workshops to community groups and social service organizations at their sites. In addition to general financial literacy, the EJP also educates people on consumer rights, public benefits, and housing rights.
Workshops are available on the following topics:
Budgeting and Saving
End-of-Life Financial Planning
Affording Rent in New York City
Financial Issues Related to Divorce and Child Support
