While our ethnic communities are geographically close to downtown, they often experience economic and social disparities. Bridging this gap is one of the most important challenges facing America today. Social programs alone don’t produce results. We must invest in creating sound economic foundations for our urban communities.
Our initiatives are designed to address the specific needs and challenges facing Bronzeville residents. They highlight the unique assets and historical attributes of our community. We provide job opportunities to residents, quality goods and services for existing and new residents, and unique events and attractions to encourage visitors. Through these initiatives, Build Bronzeville helps to stabilize our communities, facilitate their integration with the broader region, and improve the quality of life for community members.
