What Are We Doing?
TOGETHER, the Small Business Advocacy Council, Allies for Community Business (A4CB), WeRise Chicago, and 10 Chicago neighborhoods will join in an effort to send resources to the underfunded and underrepresented communities in the city.
This project will recruit local businesses with an interest in transitioning to physical spaces in the communities supported by We Rise Together, connect them with vacant commercial property owners, and provide them with coaching and mentorship services to support their transition into physical spaces. The program will also provide funding opportunities to participating businesses.
Together, we rise.
