As we move together, imagining and building a more liberated and affirming future, we believe it is critical to acknowledge the many immediate needs our community has and to share opportunities that may meet these needs.
With that in mind, we have decided to start sharing employment opportunities and economic empowerment events that freedom fighters in our state are organizing to promote black and POC businesses, share skills and resources, and hold space for collective entrepreneurship and community based economic development.

If you have job opportunities or economic empowerment events you'd like us to include in a future email, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
