As our communities continue to grapple with pressing and important conversations around racial injustice, natural disasters, and public health, our team along with countless others across the country has doubled-down to continue our work supporting our communities. As our weekly readers know, we’ve long been focused on ensuring entrepreneurs—across every race, place or gender—have equal access to funding and resources. We’re so honored to have so many tune in to the data and stories showcasing the talent of entrepreneurs of color we feature here.

We will continue to bring inspiring and authentic stories to life and provide links to resources that fearless entrepreneurs and changemakers can use for support and inspiration. This work is more important than it has ever been and we hope each and every one of you will be inspired to seek to make a difference in our communities, and then hold ourselves and each other accountable for action in the days ahead.

As Jane Goodall said in the introduction of Jean Case’s bestseller Be Fearless, “There is no point in history when it has been more important to Be Fearless, overcome our acceptance of the status quo, and for each of us to step up and take action to make a difference in our world.” We look forward to seeing the impact each of you can make.
We’ve separately showcased the fearless work of World Central Kitchen and Team Rubicon, but did you know that they often work together to help communities get back on their feet after crises? The teams are currently coordinating to get meals to first responders battling California’s wildfires.
