Crossing the Bridge

  • The African American population in Oregon is less that 2%.
  • This statistic is amazing considering the number of successful and influential African American leaders in business, education, publishing, law, medical, social service and the arts who reside and practice here.

As supportive of inner city and storefront businesses as the Chamber has been, we hope your business ambitions take you across the river!
Our members have enjoyed the financial benefits and rewards of expanding and growing their businesses by reaching consumers, customers, clients and patrons of all colors in all communities.

Joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships with majority stakeholders have expanded minority owned business and professional relationships.
