Embracing Black History Month Together

Dear NAHCC members,

This February, our Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce joined Hispanic and Latino communities around the nation in celebration and appreciation of Black History Month, recognizing the rich history and significant contributions of fellow community members - who also lead a vital and vibrant share of our small businesses.

As we support a very key segment of our community, we reflect on the intersectionality of our diverse cultures and the strength we derive from embracing our differences. It is through collaboration and mutual understanding that we pave the way for a more inclusive and prosperous future for all. Let's remain steadfast in honoring our heritage and advancing together.

#SmallBusiness #BlackHistoryMonth #Diversity

On behalf of the NAHCC Board of Directors,

Yuri Cunza

Mayor O’Connell Unveils 'Choose How You Move' Plan for November Ballot

"Nashville voters will get another chance to decide on the future of the city’s transit system. Mayor Freddie O’Connell announced Thursday morning that he will be pursuing a Nov. 5 ballot measure to expand transit. Such a plan will rely on dedicating tax dollars to transportation, though specifics about funding were not immediately provided.

The mayor is calling the plan “Choose How You Move – An All-Access Pass to Sidewalks, Signals, Service, and Safety.” He says it will draw from more than 70 planning efforts in the past decade and more than 65,000 pieces of input from the community". Learn more from NAHCC member WPLN.
