CHAMBER ADVOCACY

In a landmark year for the Space Coast Black Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (SCBCC), 2023 marked their integration into both the U.S. Chambers of Commerce and the U.S. Black Chambers of Commerce, Inc. (USBC). This strategic move significantly expanded the resources and opportunities available to SCBCC members, reaching beyond the confines of Brevard County. SCBCC President & CEO, Victoria Jones, played a pivotal role in this transition, aligning closely with USBC President & CEO, Ron Busby, to foster greater support for Black-owned businesses.

A highlight of this significant year was the 2023 USBC BLACKPrint Policy Brunch, an event co-powered by Robinhood and Google, held at the Robinhood Offices in Washington, DC. The brunch served as a platform for over 120 esteemed Black politicians, visionary entrepreneurs, dedicated Chamber members, and influential changemakers to engage in meaningful dialogue. The central theme of the event was the State of Black America, with a focus on addressing the pressing issues that impact the Black business community.

The discussions at the brunch underscored the importance of economic empowerment, policy advocacy, and community collaboration. Attendees collectively examined the challenges and opportunities facing Black entrepreneurs, from access to capital and technological advancements to systemic barriers and policy reforms. By bringing together such a diverse and influential group, the event highlighted the power of unity and the importance of strategic partnerships in driving forward the agenda for Black businesses across the nation.
