Centering BIPOC Business Voices: A community conversation to promote equitable small business recovery

We want to invite small business owners to share your stories, what is important to your business, your aspirations for small business support, and what the community can do to help you succeed.

Join us at a community conversation:

  • November 3 at Cafe 301 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
  • November 4 through Zoom from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
  • November 9 at Brightside Opportunities Center from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

*In person events will be catered by a local small business

Recently, a cross-sector collaboration of organizations, businesses, and community members in Lancaster County has joined the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s second annual Reinventing Our Communities cohort program. This program will use a lens of racial justice to focus on equitable business recovery, and to support business owners disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and those that have been historically and systematically oppressed.

Through this program we hope to identify structural barriers that business owners face and develop recommendations for equitable business recovery using input from the community, to enhance and fill in gaps that may exist in current initiatives.

Your voice is important to us, and we hope to continue to connect as we promote equitable small business recovery.

Recientemente, una colaboración intersectorial de organizaciones, empresas y miembros de la comunidad en el condado de Lancaster se ha unido al segundo programa anual Reinventar nuestras comunidades del Banco de la Reserva Federal de Filadelfia. Este programa utilizará una lente de justicia racial para enfocarse en la recuperación comercial equitativa y para apoyar a los dueños de negocios afectados de manera desproporcionada por la pandemia de COVID-19 y a aquellos que han sido histórica y sistemáticamente oprimidos.

A través de este programa, esperamos identificar las barreras estructurales que enfrentan los dueños de negocios y desarrollar recomendaciones para la recuperación empresarial equitativa utilizando los aportes de la comunidad, para mejorar y llenar los vacíos que puedan existir en las iniciativas actuales.

Su voz es importante para nosotros y esperamos seguir conectando mientras promovemos la recuperación equitativa de las pequeñas empresas. Obtenga más información en: https://www.lancfound.org/reinventing-our-communities-lancaster-county-cohort/
