The election is behind us, and we must continue looking forward. Now is the time to band together to safeguard our community from unpredictable policies and erratic governance.
We have to do more than talk the talk, we must make a daily effort to patronize and support Black-owned businesses and banks. It is our individual responsibility to work aggressively towards getting 'our house in order'... our financial house, our physical house, our spiritual house, etc. Additionally we must individually make a serious effort to partner, barter, collaborate, and support Black-owned businesses.
It's in times like this that challenge us to retreat or forge ahead. We have an unconquerable legacy of forging ahead and must continue to band together to initiate economic and socioeconomic growth in our community. Our solution to uplifting our community hasn't changed: Increase Black Business Ownership.
We stand firm on cultivating and supporting Black Business Ownership and we ask you as our members, affiliates, family and friends to join us.
Here's How YOU Can Get Involved:
Move Your Money.
Bank-Black is the single most powerful economic movement currently taking place in Black America. Now
(today) is the time to utilize our Black banks as more than a place to hold our money, but as a resource for securing capital. In an effort to help Black entrepreneurs obtain capital for personal or business use, we've created a credit card with one of the nation's most trusted and historic Black-owned banks-- Liberty Bank.

In the social media age, our digital voice can be a tool to mobilize and influence others. Profess your support of Black-owned businesses on social media. Share your pictures and stories with us on Facebook
List a Black-owned Business.
The holiday season is make or break for many Black businesses. Many of the struggling Black-owned businesses are those that are difficult to find, many are still unsearchable online. Help a Black business gain visibility through our mobile app designed to help consumers locate Black-owned businesses, especially those that are difficult to find due to not having an online presence. Download the mobile app by searching your apps for "USBC Mobile App" or submit a listing by clicking here
We're proud to say our initiatives, specifically our Buy-Black | Bank-Black initiative has helped entrepreneurs expand their business and has helped Black Americans reduce their personal debt. We look forward to utilizing the outcome of this election as fuel to forge ahead with a dedicated intention to Buy-Black and Bank-Black as the solution to safeguarding our community.
In the spirit of success,
Ron Busby, Sr.
