Acerca del evento

Be a Part of Baton Rouge & National History! Celebrate The Opportunity Initiative and Premiere of Opportunity Knock$ on PBS: The largest coordinated economic mobility campaign in U.S. history.

You are cordially invited to an unforgettable evening as we celebrate the groundbreaking success of The Opportunity Initiative, the largest coordinated economic mobility campaign in U.S. history, and the premiere of Opportunity Knocks on LPB and nationally.  This red carpet event will showcase the life-changing impact of this acclaimed television series and its profound effect on the lives of Baton Rouge residents which are inspiring the nation.

As an attendee, you'll experience the excitement of a red carpet event and gain a deeper understanding of the sincere focus on community impact that Opportunity Knocks is measuring as part of The Opportunity Initiative. This Telly and Anthem Awards-winning show is behaviorally designed to reduce the shame of financial challenges, overcome the distrust of institutions, and increase opportunities for the 40%+ of Americans living on survival budgets.

The Opportunity Initiative's transformative technology, the recipient of a Gold DotCom Award, is revolutionizing access to financial wellness and social services. The Opportunity Finder, featured in the series, used by viewers, and free to nonprofits, connects users to vital resources such as utility assistance, childcare, eviction prevention, business start-up services, and equitable access to capital through CDFIs. In Season One alone, The Opportunity Finder connected 70,000 people to these critical services.

Opportunity Knocks is broadcast nationally by PBS stations and streams on PBS Passport. It is underwritten by The National Council for Financial Opportunities, Callahan & Associates, The Wells Fargo Foundation, and Balance. It is distributed by American Public Television (APT) and presenting station WXXI.

 Your presence will not only support The Opportunity Initiative but also inspire others to join this vital movement for economic mobility and financial inclusion.
