Legacy Business Initiative


The National Urban League and the Democracy at Work Institute, in collaboration with Citi Community Development, have partnered to learn more about the needs of minority business owners with a particular focus on Black-owned businesses. Through statistical research, field research, and stakeholder convenings. In particular, this project explores what might be needed to implement the intentional economic development strategy of converting longstanding minorityowned businesses to worker cooperatives, designed to preserve and build wealth within neighborhoods where people live and work.
