Gabe and Connor, the co-founders of CELI, recently had the opportunity to interview Connecticut State Treasurer Wooden, a dedicated advocate for CT baby bonds and increased financial literacy requirements in the Nutmeg state. Specifically, Treasurer Wooden discussed CT baby bonds’s ability to alleviate socioeconomic disparities in generational wealth and potentially empower federal baby bonds legislation. Additionally, Treasurer Wooden advocated for mandatory financial education requirements for high school students, emphasizing the importance of financial literacy principles like budgeting and credit. The interview was a highly informative conversation that provided many valuable insights for CELI and our mission to advance financial literacy for young people throughout the state.
