Irish Network Against Racism

The Irish Network Against Racism (INAR) is a membership organization. They are committed to combating racism and all related forms of discrimination in every sphere of life in Ireland. INAR is dedicated to finding common strategies and policy positions for combating racism, finding ways of complementing each other’s work, and to offering cross-community and cross-sectoral support and solidarity.

Minnesota Black Chamber of Commerce

The Minnesota Black Chamber of Commerce believes that racial inequality and social injustice have no place in business society. It’s time to come together to keep this important conversation going and help enact real change.

Over the last few weeks, recent events affecting our Black business community across the state of Minnesota have brought those injustices and the systemic racism that have plagued our Black-owned business community to the forefront. We all must do our part to take action and make our voices heard.

The MN Black Chamber Black Business Support Fund aims to do just that, addressing both the immediate and urgent needs of our Black-owned businesses in Minnesota; as well as the broader more systemic issues surrounding racial inequalities in business.
