To redistribute wealth and honor diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Over the past year, a growing number of Twin Cities businesses have become more focused, vocal, and visible in their efforts to address Minnesota’s long-standing racial disparities.

It has been inspiring to see this real swell of effort, especially as it pertains to diversity in recruiting and hiring, creating more inclusive work environments, and shifting community support dollars toward organizations that provide loans and grants to BIPOC owned businesses.

But too often, too many organizations are overlooking one of the most powerful ways they could actually make a difference.
