This event will provide a platform for networking, knowledge sharing, and dialogue among entrepreneurs, community leaders, and individuals interested in supporting the growth of Black businesses. It is an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who are passionate about creating a more equitable and prosperous future for all.


We’re also thrilled to share that local and state elected officials will provide remarks on the need for Pennsylvania to raise the minimum wage, as well as highlight the importance of wage equity and explain why Black business owners are at the forefront of this movement.
