In April of this year, some of our nation’s most powerful African-American leaders and activists including, Rev. Al Sharpton President of The National Action Network, Marc Morial President of The National Urban League, Ben Jealous President of The NAACP, Warren Ballentine and several others came together to discuss measuring the financial progression and movement of their community. Ballentine along with the National Action Network issued the national call to action “Targeting Your Money,” aimed at encouraging consumers to strategically target their money, with the specific goal of elevating their communities.
Ballentine shares, “I am committed to continuing to find ways to trigger action in my community and will continue to leverage my talk show and everything that I touch to find new ways to elevate and breathe new life into our community, because it’s ultimately our responsibility to ensure that our communities thrive.” Ballentine adds, “Rev. Sharpton, along with Ben, Marc and our other supporters all share the same relentless commitment and drive to uplifting our community. Our shared goal is to underline our collective economic power and become more strategic in how we invest and spend our money.”
Ballentine continues to galvanize his listeners along with consumers, business leaders and social groups all across America to actively get involved in empowering and transforming their own communities. Through active partnerships with his listeners, sponsors and supporters, Ballentine uses the power of media and communications to promote change and positively influence the lives of others. He continues to be a leading voice on issues and challenges facing Black America. Ballentine continues to spotlight issues such as racial injustice, financial literacy & economic prosperity, criminal justice, and other topics.
