Economic Empowerment is a major pillar of Atlanta Black Pride.
Atlanta Black Pride recognizes the key to safe, sustainable and thriving communities is ensuring its members have the tools, resources, and opportunities to be economically self-sufficient. Every individual deserves the opportunity to earn a liveable wage – with benefits; and, or pursue their passion of launching their own businesses.
ABP aims to meet the needs of the community by establishing a foundation of financial literacy through workshops and education; creating career opportunities and skills training through our Workforce Development programs, and supporting business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs through bootcamp and re-directing resources access to capital pipelines through our Entrepreneurship Center.
ABP has been working actively to develop relationships with corporations, hiring managers and staffing agencies to increase the employment opportunities for the community we serve. Our work goes beyond simply placing individuals with companies that are hiring, but rather aim to provide our community members with opportunities to build sustainable careers.
