Black Lives & Businesses Matter

A Message from the Board and Staff of the Community Business Partnership

Dear CBP Community,
As an organization that is focused on supporting America’s multicultural communities, we stand in solidarity with the Black community and those across the nation who are fighting to bring an end to systemic racism and social injustices.
We will continue to work together with community partners and small businesses to empower and support the Black community by fostering more economic and social equality and justice efforts. We will work harder to make sure that the faces of our staff reflect the faces of our clients and make more diligent efforts to reach out to minority communities. We reaffirm our commitment to providing accessible resources and support to minority-small business owners, and especially to Black-owned businesses.
In doing this, we also know that we have a responsibility to educate others on how to better support minority-owned small businesses, and we want to share a few simple ways you can support Black-owned businesses NOW:
Remember that there is power in your dollar! Sharing information and amplification are incredible tools and in the big picture, even the small choices we each make each day matter.
With love and steadfast support,
The Board and Staff of the Community Business Partnership

“The CBP counselors and volunteers have been instrumental in helping me increase my knowledge and confidence in business ownership. Because of their guidance, I’ve been able to expand my practice and move into a larger facility with more employees.”
