Make Money Make Change @ Stony Point Center, Stony Point, NY
Nov 9 @ 9:00 am – Nov 12 @ 12:15 pm

This four-day conference aims to generate visions of a future in which land, wealth and power are equitably distributed. MMMC is a confidential space that uses workshops, storytelling and skill building to create a space for young people with class privilege and wealth to explore questions of identity and responsibility in a supportive environment. MMMC programming is dynamic and specific to young people with wealth who are interested in social justice. If you are just starting to think about identity and social change MMMC is a great space for you! It’s also a great conference to attend if you have been grappling with these issues for some time, and want to do that work in community. We’ll explore a range of topics from creating a giving plan for distributing resources to the dynamics of being in cross-class relationships and communities.
