Consumers of all abilities require access to safe, affordable, and sustainable insured transaction and savings accounts. Financial institution access improves their ability to safely save, build assets, and create wealth. Access also protects them from theft and discriminatory practices. Often most important, banking access can help provide a financial safety net against unforeseen circumstances.
This Summit will make the case for Financial Inclusion for persons with disabilities, and explore the steps communities are taking to enhance Inclusive Banking. Discussion leaders will include those from the National Disability Institute (NDI) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Summit participants will engage with others from their community, and communities across Florida, to realize impactful, lasting change in the lives of all their Florida neighbors.
