Mesa CARES Small Business Grants
If you didn't receive CARES Act PPP or other funding or know of a Mesa small business that didn't, there is still hope!
|Dear ULI Arizona Members and Friends:
We are witnessing an awakening in our community. The ongoing and brutal violence committed against the Black community, coupled with the disparate effect the Corona virus pandemic has inflicted upon Black, minority and impoverished communities, has served as a stark reminder that systemic and institutional racism continues to perpetuate racial, social, and economic inequality for people of color in our society.
To our members who are suffering, we are listening, and we hear you with heavy hearts. We are committed to confront these problems with more than platitudes of thoughts and prayers. For everyone, we invite you to join us now to do our part in addressing racial inequities throughout our region and our industry. There are no easy answers, but the ongoing disparities illustrate that our past approaches are not working and there is much more to be done.
ULI Arizona’s commitment to you and the community is to take actions that are deliberate and support positive change:
We recognize the necessity to embrace all marginalized groups in these efforts, including our Indigenous and Hispanic communities. It is critical that our membership, leadership, and industry be representative of all Arizonans. In keeping with ULI’s mission to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide, it is imperative that we create a better future that enables everyone to live-out the promise of being a part of this vision.
With ULI Arizona’s unique ability to convene industry and community thought-leaders around sharing best practices and developing strategies to guide us through times of uncertainty and change, we look forward to coming together, whether in-person or virtually, to have these conversations, learn from each other and hear from new voices, and be a part of the solutions that deliver meaningful change. We welcome your feedback (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Please join us in creating an inclusive organization and community.
