Join Small Business Majority, Build Bronzeville, Greater Southwest Development Corporation, New Covenant Community Development Corporation, and West Side Forward for a roundtable discussion about policy recommendations for an equitable and sustainable small business recovery, especially for those in under-resourced neighborhoods who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, including the self-employed. Policies that will be presented for discussion will focus on those that:


  • Enable start-up and sustainability
  • Provide cash assistance to low and moderate-income entrepreneurs and self-employed individuals
  • Ensure fair lending and equitable opportunities to access capital
  • Create workplace policies that provide financial security for owners and their employees
