"In the I.E., as in Greater Los Angeles Area, African Americans are 7% of the population but own less than 1% of revenue from business ownership. Nowhere in America do we have a representative share of business revenue. Changing this paradigm is essential to improving our economic health and increasing the number of our families that are middle class. CEEM is here to change that by uniting our community around our market potential and providing support to Black owned business and individuals that allow them to operate successful enterprises while committing to operate in line with shared core values that create a community ethic driving greater prosperity." - Reggie Webb, Founder
