EBA Gives Back is an established component of EBA Conferences; but this year our members will see a shift in the mission and duration of this program. The EBA Gives Back Committee is led by co-chairs Akemi Berry and Meghan Maltby.
This year's EBA Gives Back focuses on supporting social justice following much civil unrest and a global pandemic. Our first action in this effort is to shift the direction of the EBA Gives Back to address equity, inclusion, and diversity in
For this year's Gives Back, we have set the goal of affiliate and financial member contributions of $100,000 across our nation through the end of the Winter Conference. The EBA Gives Back Committee has supported West Broadway Business and Area Coalition (WBC) and Northside Funders Group in Minneapolis which promote equity and inclusion in business development by investing in BIPOC-led (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) businesses.
Working in only one neighborhood in one city is not enough; however, if we all work with our local organizations, that is how real change starts. Local organizations often best understand the needs of their communities, and that is how real change starts. Let’s
open the conversation to figure out what organizations and movements need our expertise and help!
Come join us in our Town Hall. We want to hear what our fellow members have done in their own communities. If you are overwhelmed and do not know where to even begin, we want you there too! We can help offer some direction and you can hear what
great impacts your peers have made in their own cities.
This EBA Gives Back Town Hall seeks to facilitate the discussion of how we can best achieve this year’s EBA Gives Back goal. Bring your stories and ideas and tell us during our EBA Gives Back Town Hall Meeting on Zoom, taking place on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at 5pm eastern.
