ABOUT US

Logo Story

As a millennial, with a foundation rooted in advocacy for nearly two decades, Chantel is driven by the words of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lewis, "Our ancestors may have all come here on different ships, but we're in the same boat now." As an entrepreneur, Chantel believes, "it is OUR time to take the helm and steer the ship toward economic justice, community power, and generational wealth. 2020 has shifted the economic trajectory in favor of the Black community. This is the moment to reconstruct our history and build the movement for generational wealth, justice, and power.
