Remaking the Economy in Fresno: Community in the Time of COVID-19

 Fresno was allocated $66 million in capital investment through participatory budgeting, the largest use of that process in US history. As is true everywhere, the current pandemic has upended the Fresno community. Our CEO Tara Lynn Gray, joined community leaders, Sabina Gonzalez Erana, Veronica Garibay, and Kiel Lopez Schmidt with NonProfit Quarterly's Steve Dubb, to discuss Fresno's tremendous racial and economic inequality, the current work being done to address it, COVID-19's impact, and how we can work together to advance a more equitable, post-pandemic future for Fresno.


The Fresno Metro Black Chamber of Commerce is a locally-based membership organization with a global reach advancing the interests of the greater African-American business community.
