From the desk of Jill Meyer
As our nation struggles, we focus even more deliberately on including everyone in the fair, equal opportunity of life in the United States and honing the work we’ve done so far. The Chamber's Minority Business Accelerator is growing regional African American and Hispanic businesses, and changing generations of lives. The African American Chamber is beginning new conversations, under the leadership of Eric Kearney, to provide more support for economic prosperity. The Urban League reminds us, less than a year after issuing The State of Black Cincinnati, that we have a long way to go and that it is everyone coming together boldly that will make change. Each of us has a role to play. As the NAACP convention visits Cincinnati, next week, please join me in making our city most welcoming. Thank you.
