Actress Regina King Helping Underserved Communities

Oscar-winning actress Regina King is helping underserved communities! AfroTech shares that King is partnering with Wells Fargo to promote and improve financial literacy.

“We are thrilled to be working with Regina King… as she demonstrates through her genuine life experiences how Active Cash is a straightforward credit card that makes it easy to earn 2% cash rewards on purchases,” Krista Phillips, Wells Fargo’s head of branded cards and marketing, said in a press statement.

“When you hear about cash back for credit cards, it’s usually relating to something really specific,” King said in the same press release. “The great thing about an Active Cash Card is you get a cash reward on everything you purchase. I hadn’t ever heard of a cash card working in that way. It’s something that can benefit everyone from my son’s age who is just now establishing his credit to someone like you and me.”

AfroTech reports that Wells Fargo has created positive reinforcements in the Black community by “distributing a $50 million evergreen fund for startups created by Black entrepreneurs earlier this year in addition to a $20 million pledge to contribute to the fund over the next five years.”

Thank you, Wells Fargo and Regina King, for staying committed to helping families in need!
