Podcast Aims to Arm Latinos with Information and Resources to Achieve Full Economic Citizenship
Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 21, 2016 – Master Your Card: Oportunidad today announced its support of the launch of “Tu Dinero con Julie Stav,” a Spanish-language podcast produced by Julie Stav and reVolver Podcasts. The program is focused on providing Latinos with the information and resources they need to achieve full economic citizenship and the American Dream. Master Your Card: Oportunidad – a community empowerment program that partners with Latino consumer, labor and small business groups – is proud to serve as the podcast’s inaugural sponsor.
A first-of-its-kind program, the podcast is a new and innovative way to combine financial education and a premier, well-respected personality on Latino financial issues. Julie Stav – a financial expert, educator and Master Your Card: Oportunidad Advisory Board member – will use this platform to empower Latinos and to provide them with the tools and tailored advice they need to make informed financial decisions. reVolver Podcasts, with its network of well-regarded talent, reaches a global audience of multicultural consumers.
“I’m proud to support Julie as she takes on this new endeavor and continues her work to provide Latinos with vital financial education and resources,” said Fabian Nuñez, former speaker of the California Assembly and chair of the Master Your Card: Oportunidad Advisory Board. “Our board is committed to helping Latinos realize greater financial inclusion and growth, and Julie’s podcast is a great example of that work.”
According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, 46.4 percent of Latino households in the United States are either unbanked or underbanked, meaning they have little or no access to mainstream financial services. In contrast, less than 20 percent of white households are unbanked or underbanked.
“Throughout my career, I’ve been committed to helping Latinos achieve full economic citizenship and am thrilled to be offering this important information in a new format,” said Stav. “With far too many Latinos relying on expensive alternative financial services, I am proud to work with Master Your Card: Oportunidad to help them take charge of their financial futures by effectively using tools like electronic payment technology.”
“We’re excited about adding Master Your Card as a launch partner in the Julie Stav program,” said Jack Hobbs, president, reVolver Podcasts. “reVolver Podcasts and Master Your Card are both providing information to the Latino consumer in a timely fashion. We look forward to this partnership going forward.”
Along with Nuñez and Stav, members of the Master Your Card: Oportunidad Advisory Board work to provide community empowerment opportunities for Latinos that show how the wise selection and use of electronic payment technology can help build financial strength through increased convenience, transparency, affordability and control. The board, which was created four years ago, consists of current and former Latino political, business and civic leaders from across the United States.
