Join the M.O.V.E.MENTFor over 15 years the African American Chamber has offered the most robust set of minority business programs in the region, and helped hundreds of businesses grow. Despite our best efforts, the African American community continues to have:
An unemployment rate that is 2X the rest of the population
Largest disparities in education and wealth in the nation.
If we were to just spend 1 dime of each dollar made make with African American owned companies, we would have stronger companies and create 1 million jobs nationally.
While African American buying power exceeds $1 trillion (the 17th largest economy in the world).
We can change this. MOVE with us.
