About the Event

The Economic Justice Academy (EJA) was created in 2020 to help address the growing Black wealth gap in the US. The EJA is a holistic financial empowerment platform designed to create sustainable Black wealth through a combination of education, implementation, and advocacy. 

Our inaugural virtual conference will be hosted on the Hopin virtual event platform. Join us as we explore the state of Black wealth in America and consider paths towards a better future. We are excited to share a variety of viewpoints that encompass cooperative economics, harnessing the power in our community, and the systemic changes that would have the largest sustained impact on our community.
