Reinventing Our Communities (ROC) Cohort Program

The Chester County Community Foundation is pleased to be participating in the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia Reinventing Our Communities (ROC) Cohort Program. This program brings together nine communities for a 10-week training focused on examining barriers for small business owners of color. In partnership with Race Forward, cohort participants will be equipped with racial equity tools to create a plan to address these barriers. #ROCSmallBizEquity
