YOU’RE INVITED TO OWN YOUR POWER!

Need help in starting your business?

Want to make your established business grow?

The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is proud to partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to host Many Faces. One Dream., a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) economic empowerment tour for communities of color.

All events for MFOD-Oakland will take place at the Host Hotel:
Oakland Marriott City Center
1001 Broadway | Oakland, CA 94607

For only $25, you will receive more than $500 of valuable training and resources that will take your business to the next level. During this two-day conference, attendees will be divided into two tracks: “Starting Your Business” and “Taking Your Business to the Next Level.” In the first track, training will be provided on the key elements of a business plan, loans, marketing, and SBA’s program and services. The second track will be geared toward LGBT entrepreneurs who are currently in business but want to expand and grow.

Despite the challenges gay and transgender people face, LGBT communities of color represent a growing segment of aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners. Rich with ideas and talent, LGBT men and women are creating and leading their own companies. Many Faces. One Dream. expands the conversation from economic security to economic empowerment and bankability.

Register to attend TODAY! We look forward to seeing you there!
