Working on the Economic Development Committee

We are working to initiate a black economic agenda to guide our advocacy efforts, deliver tangible outcomes for our regional African American community, and reduce disparities that exist in public sector agencies. To do that, we:

  • Leverage infrastructure and revitalization projects for Job creation and enterprise growth for African Americans.
  • Bridge the gap of access to capital for African American business owners.
  • Turn our dollars within the Black community for wealth, health, and economic creation in our communities, businesses, and families.

You can be part of this high-impact work! We are seeking innovative, capacity builders and economic thinkers across industries to better plan and demand economic change and equity in our community.
