Thank You!

Thank you for joining us for Behind the Numbers: How Inflation and the Economy Are Affecting Our Communities on October 19, 2022. We hope the discussion was helpful for you to learn more about inflation and the ways small businesses in our neighborhoods are bearing an extra burden during this crisis. We also hope you feel as inspired as we do to come together as a community to support them.
