Capitol Hill Hosts Jump$tart, CUNA Fin Ed Day
WASHINGTON (4/26/13)--The Jump$tart Coalition for Financial Literacy, the Credit Union National Association and other partners will educate members of the U.S. Congress and their staff on the many financial literacy projects of government, nonprofit and corporate organizations during today's Financial Literacy Day.

This is the 11th year that Jump$tart and partners have presented Financial Literacy Day on Capitol Hill. The event, which will be held in the Cannon House Office Building, will feature remarks from co-chairs Reps. Ruben Hinojosa (D-Texas) and Steven Stivers (R-Ohio).

CUNA staff will be on hand at the event to distribute financial literacy materials and promote aSmarterChoice.org, which provides a comprehensive credit union locator that includes every credit union in the U.S. Consumers can go on the site, answer a few simple questions about where they live, work or worship, and find credit unions nearby that they can join.
