Building Equity for Black Entrepreneurs
Wednesday, June 21, 2023, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As we honor Juneteenth and celebrate Black liberation this month, how can we continue to support Black communities and businesses year round, in San Francisco and beyond? Black Americans continue to face systemic barriers and have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, but Black-led community organizations are leading the way to create a more equitable future.
Hear from organizers and food entrepreneurs who are developing innovative, community-based models to uplift Black food culture and traditions, provide market opportunities, and build wealth, health, and power in Bay Area Black communities. Join us to learn how you can support these efforts and get involved.
This event features partners in Foodwise’s Building Equity program, which supports the business growth, economic viability, and asset-building of BIPOC food entrepreneurs.
