This month we bring to you a two part mini podcast series on the People First Economy's Move Your Money Campaign. This campaign was created to spread awareness around the importance of keeping your money locally, the impacts of our current financial system, and how to participate in building a more resilient place-based (local) financial system.
For part two, we invited Elissa Sangalli from Northern Initiatives to talk about CDFIs and the work that Northern Initiatives does to make an impact on communities around Michigan and parts of Wisconsin. She gives us insight into the impacts of our financial systems and the role CDFIs play in the economy.
This episode is brought you by Lake Michigan Credit Union. For more about why we created this campaign, read the article "Move Your Money - it's Good For Michigan" or check out the Move Your Money campaign page.
