Suze Orman: The Atlanta ‘O You!’ Interview
“Only spend money with corporations who support you.”
Saturday morning we caught up with Suze Orman of ‘Ask ‘ (Season 2 premiered last night on ‘s All StarsOWN: The ). Orman was in Atlanta for NetworkO: The Oprah Magazine’s O You! Conference at the Georgia World Congress Center.
We asked Suze where the LGBT community should be spending it’s money…
“Listen everybody, we have a lot of work to do. We have a lot of laws to change. We have to be valued as true human beings with equal rights across the board. What allows us to do that? Money to change the laws. We need money so people can hear your message.
So my advice to all of you? Only spend money with those corporations who support you, who aren’t taking the money that we give them then take that money to work against us.
We need to work one and one so we can change everything to make us valid in who we choose and how we want to live our lives so we can get equally married on the federal level – that’s the goal here.”
