From our partners

“It’s been said that good people with good intentions make good policy possible and much of what Transform Fresno will accomplish through our Transformative Climate Communities grant would not have been possible without the support of the good people at the Fresno Metro Black Chamber of Commerce.”

Courtney Espinoza

“The chamber is an integral part of the regional small business ecosystem and a valued partner in facilitating capital to Black businesses.”
