3 years ago when Mark captured the pic of me in front of an empty building holding the sign that read "We got a Building," I had no doubts & BELIEVED then that The Ke'nekt Cooperative would be an anchor institution & the catalyst for how community connects. I envisioned a space where Black Folks felt love, safety & would gather.
A week later it is still hard to put the emotions to scribe exactly what our Juneteenth Jubilee Celebration was.
You. just. simply. had. to. be. there
1000 community folks gathered to celebrate Juneteenth
on a block & a building that is committed to Black Liberation.
15 Businesses & Community Partners were showcased
in our Cooperative Economic Marketplace
$61,875 was The economic impact & revenue generated from
consumers of Juneteenth Jubilee Block Party
100 Free Meals were Distributed to community
$500 was redistributed to Raising Expectations from our commitment
to redistribute capital from our cooperative
Special thank you to our AMAZING community volunteers who consistently show up & show out!
I also want to recognize Wells Fargo, Emergent, Cricket Wireless, Georgia Microenterprise, Superb Roofing of GA, CMC Development Group LLC & Footlocker for the generous support of our Juneteenth Jubilee Block Party.
