"Is it even a room if we're not in it?"

-Arion Long, Founder of Femly

THANK YOU for joining ABC for a dynamic evening of networking and inspiration!

Our special guests made an undeniable impact on our hearts, and their words will bolster and shape both our communal and individual work in the time to come.

Their stories of entrepreneurship, sisterhood, and endurance highlight ABC's mission, which is to dismantle economic barriers for the Black people of Maryland.

And the presence of YOU, our guests, was a testament to the power of our community facing these barriers head-on. If we show up for one another, we can face anything. For we truly are "help-made, not self-made".

Thank you to all our ticket holders, donors, and sponsors who make our work possible! If you have not yet made an end-of-year tax-deductible donation to ABC, please donate now to help us continue our barrier-breaking work.
