We welcomed thousands to the HUB July 28-July 30th; engaged with community based organizations in Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan; secured several game changing contracts for women and Black owned businesses; and members engaged in rigorous debate on issues important to Black America. By all metrics this unprecedented convening had unprecedented impact, and we could not have done it without you!
