Small Business Town Hall Forum

On Monday, April 22, 2019, the U.S. Small Business Administration is hosting a Town Hall Forum in Flushing, Queens to address the concerns of Asian American and Pacific Islander small businesses. The forum is sponsored by the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Renaissance Economic Development Corporation (REDC) staff will be attending. We urge our community to join us for this important event.

The regional forum is an opportunity to voice your concerns! AAPI businesses must have access to more capital for small business expansion. We want to make sure the federal government hears that message loud and clear.

Monday, April 22, 5:30-8 p.m.
Flushing Library, Ground Floor Room A/B
41-17 Main St.
