Message from Our National President

Anger. Fear. Grief. Exasperation.
Like you, our organization is grappling with the emotional distress of seeing yet more lives lost and broken due to racial injustice and social inequity in our country. While many of us joined protests to peacefully demand justice, we also watched with you as civil unrest erupted into violence and vandalism in many cities. These events – coupled with the already damaging economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic – are dealing with devastating blows to the minority business community.

I’ll be direct. The time for simply talking about these problems has passed. Change must come and come quickly. More than any other time in history, we are now called upon as business leaders to not only lend a hand to our MBEs, but to take definitive action and stand up against the systemic racial barriers plaguing our society.
