As a renewed call for progress and change captivates the nation, the Newnan-Coweta Chamber readies itself for action alongside the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as part of a national initiative to address inequality of opportunity in the business community. A June 25th town hall meeting hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce brought business and community leaders together to identify and discuss concrete actions that can be taken by the government and private sector in support of closing the gap for Blacks and people of color. As a result, the Chamber is outlining a plan to facilitate business and industry dialogues to advance the initiative locally on the topics of education, employment, entrepreneurship, and criminal justice.
The Newnan-Coweta Chamber's mission has been and will remain, to advocate for all of our members and the business community in building and sustaining a diverse and prosperous economy. To fulfill our mission, we must work to create a safe environment where all of our citizens can live and work without fear and discrimination. Injustice and prosperity are incompatible. In collaboration with the Equality of Opportunity task force committee, the Chamber will give voice to economic inequity and promote access to opportunities that uplift people of all backgrounds across our region.
