FACEBOOK UNVEILS NEW 3-MONTH HOLIDAY INITIATIVE FOR BLACK BUSINESSES
As the holiday season approaches, many corporations and public institutions are doing their part to help Black and minority-owned businesses recover in the wake of the COVID-19, or novel coronavirus, pandemic. This week, Facebook has unveiled its new plan to help Black businesses with a new three-month campaign to highlight Black entrepreneurs.
The social media company has launched a global holiday initiative called “Season of Support,” and an 11-week campaign to provide education, resources, and training for small businesses to help them adapt for the holiday season during the public health crisis.

It’s time to stand up and help Black businesses.” READ MORE ON BLACK ENTERPRISE
