New York, New York – Executive of New York’s State’s largest African American Chamber LIAACC States “Black Chamber support will be vital to Black Business Success during this economic downturn in America.” As the New District Office of the United States Small Business Administration’s 2019 Small Business Champion for 14 counties in Downstate, New York we see the struggles that African Businesses face daily.  

Chambers like ours will continue to help provide technical support, business training, marketing support, and quality programming with the support of Corporate Partners and Donors who are willing to support organizations such as ours to decrease economic disparities in the minority communities.

“African American Chamber of Commerce support will be increasingly vital to leveling the playing field in America and reducing disparities that exist in local minority communities across America. A renewed commitment across America to meaningful diversity initiatives will significantly shape a greater future for all Americans.” – Phil Andrews, President, Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

On June 1, 2020 the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. launched its Black Equity Captial Campaign to garner support to decrease the amount of inequities amongst minority businesses in America. The Black Equity Campaign is designed to raise capital to provide increased capacity building and technical assistance to disadvantaged businesses in the minority community.

According to Blackdemographics.com receipts from black-owned businesses with employees totaled $103.5 billion an increase of 4.7 percent from 2007. In 2012, 2.5 million black-owned businesses had no paid employees.   

Since its inception the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce has been actively engaged in bringing quality services to the African American Community to increase both size and the scope of small business owners in its service territory in New York State.
