Business News and Opportunities
Two committees function in this category:
- The Business and Economic Empowerment Committee seeks to accelerate economic growth in our communities and eliminate racial and ethnic economic disparities. We push for legislation that promotes livable wages, discrimination-free employment, and reduction in the poverty level. We promote development and expansion of minority-owned businesses and economic reciprocity. We work for increased development of decent affordable housing in our communities. We advocate for increased access to credit, capital and financial services for minority communities.
- The Labor and Industry Committee seek to secure state and federal fair employment practices and greater participation of the trade union movement.
