Comcast has committed to a multiyear plan to fight injustice and inequality. As part of this commitment, we’re allocating substantial resources to help Black-owned small businesses in Utah through our new Comcast RISE program. Comcast RISE stands for Representation, Investment, Strength and Empowerment. The program will start in 2020 with an initial focus on Black-owned businesses. The next submission cycle will open up eligibility to all BIPOC business owners, those next hit hardest by the effects of the pandemic.
The pandemic has placed a spotlight on systemic racism. This commitment helps lower the barriers and create opportunities for not only business to recover, but the potential to grow. It takes a village to raise a village and we appreciate Comcast’s support and their partnership to our community.” – James Jackson III, Utah Black Chamber, Founder and Board President
