Small businesses continue to reinvent themselves in response to evolving neighborhoods, the changing retail landscape and economic recessions. In the past year, it has become clear how vital small businesses are to our communities. Black-owned small businesses and businesses of color are especially critical, serving as important cultural and community hubs.
Join SPUR for a panel discussion with community leaders from Oakland. The panel will explore these topics and share lessons for the region on how to ensure these small businesses survive the current economic downturn and flourish into the future.
