As you know, minority and women-owned businesses in New York have been the victims of discrimination for generations. Pervasive and widespread discriminatory practices have created a two-tiered economic system, in which minority and women-owned business enterprises are systemically undercapitalized and undervalued. Public investment by New York City and New York State has ignored the demonstrated capital needs of M/WBEs, while supporting financial institutions that actively discriminate against minority clients.
We believe that New York's M/WBEs deserve a fair chance to succeed, but we need your help to win this fight. Please join us.
