Washington, D.C.– Tomorrow, July 9th U.S. Black Chambers’ President & CEO Ron Busby will testify before Congress as it relates to Black-owned businesses receiving fair access to capital and financial services.
“Black business owners historically and presently face systemic barriers to resources and access to capital, to name a few. The facts outlined in the 2019 Federal Reserve Bank report demonstrate the American banking institution is still systemically discriminatory, predatory, and racist.
As a voice for the nation’s Black business owners I’m going before Congress to outline the U.S. Black Chambers’ vision for fair and equitable access to capital for Black business owners,” said USBC President Ron Busby.
