AMPLIFY TASK FORCE

Amplify Task Force is a volunteer-driven initiative that conceptualizes, promotes, represents, and advocates for minority economic development during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

TASK FORCE GOALS

  • Create a system of working committees that function as think tanks for developing and periodically updating the strategic agenda for minority economic prosperity across the Carolinas.

  • Seek continued commitment from all sectors to address inequities and systemic discrimination that result in economic disparities.
