Wu Yee Children's Services has partnered with Bayview Underground and Andrea Baker Consulting, to provide childcare for a Race and Equity Community Dinner Series.   

On Thursday, March 29th, at the Bayview Opera House, moderator, Theo Ellington, led a conversation about People of Colors’ experience in the San Francisco Bay Area around finance and wealth planning. The all native San Franciscan panel included Saundra Davis, Executive Director and founder of Sage Financial Solutions; Jeannette Fisher-Kouadio, a generational wealth attorney specializing in estate planning, probate, and trusts; Deven Richardson, Director of Real Estate Development at San Francisco Housing Development Corporation; and Dasarte Yarnway, Co-Founder and CEO of Berknell Financial group.  

Various topics surrounding financial planning were discussed including how to use San Francisco’s free financial resources, how to save for the future when debt is greater than income, and how to take control of one’s finances, no matter what life stage or circumstances. 

A delicious and healthy meal was provided courtesy of Nigel Jones, Chef and Owner of Kaya Restaurant, in San Francisco and Kingston 11 in Oakland.

There will be two additional dinners with panel discussions led by a moderator in this series. Stay tuned for more information!
