We are a non-partisan alliance of business leaders and supporters focused on driving economic progress for the Black community through public policy, advocacy, and political engagement.
What We Do
- Advance an economic policy agenda focused on improving economic outcomes in three core areas: work, wages, and wealth
- Support candidates for office who are aligned with that agenda by providing endorsements and funding key elections
- Hold government officials across the political spectrum accountable to that agenda
- The Black Economic Alliance is ultimately a partnership of individuals and organizations who are committed to advancing economic progress in Black communities. We cannot do this work without your support. Find out more about our work here.
How You Can Help
BE Alliance grew out of a convening of Black business and civic leaders who have raised money for philanthropies and political campaigns on an ad hoc basis. We decided it was time to come together and collectively leverage our resources in the service of economic justice for the Black community.
BE Alliance will identify and support candidates who champion economic opportunities for Black Americans, and once they are elected, we will hold them accountable.
