FAB is partnering with Cooper Square Committee and the citywide United for Small Business / NYC campaign organized by ANHD.
United for Small Business NYC (USBnyc) is a coalition of community organizations across New York City fighting to protect New York’s small businesses and non-residential tenants from the threat of displacement, with particular focus on owner-operated, low-income, minority-run businesses that serve low-income and minority communities. Small businesses provide jobs, culturally relevant goods and services, and community, keeping our neighborhoods thriving and vibrant places to live. The rising cost of rent leads to displacement that impacts both longtime small businesses and burgeoning entrepreneurs across New York. The communities that tend to be hardest hit are communities of color and immigrant communities facing rapid gentrification.
