Chicago Black Business Group Seeks More Members to Rebuild Community
WE CAN, Inc, a coalition of business and community professionals, has formed an organization to shore up and support the empowerment of both existing and future African American businesses needed to stabilize, maintain, expand and grow and has set a goal of 100 members needed to help fight for an equitable slice of the economic pie on all governmental levels.
According to Cox, the president, WE CAN Inc.’s goal is to boost its membership so that it can begin the awesome but doable tasks of developing African American businesses in the community.
“We need to develop and maintain our businesses and keep our money in our community because currently most of it goes outside where we live. We can and we will achieve this goal with your help,” she said.
“We are looking forward to hearing from black business people who are serious about improving the economic growth of the black community,” said President Cox.
“We want to support, maintain and build so we can employ young people from the community and to teach them as role models how to growth their own business. We want to help the black community grow and in doing so it will empower the community because when youth have jobs, the violence will subside,” said Cox, also a former President Of The Chicago Board Of Education.
