The Aspen Institute Financial Security Program (Aspen FSP) is pleased to host a public lunchtime event to release the “Short-Term Financial Stability: A Foundation for Security and Well-Being” brief on Thursday, April 25 at Noon.

Over the last year, Aspen FSP has convened the Consumer Insights Collaborative, an effort across nine leading nonprofits to collectively understand and amplify data about the financial lives of low- and moderate-income households for the public good. As part of this work, these organizations have collectively informed a report exploring how short-term financial stability provides the foundation for financial security and well-being.

On Thursday, April 25th, Aspen FSP will host a public lunchtime event to release the report. This event will feature a short presentation highlighting the key findings of the report, followed by a moderated panel exploring the issues that households face with balancing income and expenses in ways that allow them to build liquidity and a platform of financial stability. Lunch will be available beginning at 11:30am and the event will commence at noon with the public panel.
