State Bar launching financial program

The State Bar of Wisconsin has launched a statewide program to teach students and adults financial literacy.

Starting Wednesday, according to a news release, schools and other community groups around the state can book a free, 45-minute presentation from a local bankruptcy attorney on personal finance matters such as how to establish a good credit history, start a budget, and avoid or manage debt.

The presentation is part of the national Credit Abuse Resistant Education program, a national program that has been active in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. The State Bar is helping establish the program statewide.

To volunteer to be a presenter or to schedule a presentation, visit wisbar.org/care or email pubedcoordinator@wisbar.org.
