Day at the Capitol


Join us for Advocacy Day. When the Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce (VABCC) and Virginia Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials (VABC-LEO), business owners and community members, unite, we advocate powerfully for the interests of the black community.

Our collective efforts help to ensure that the voice of the black community is heard and their needs are addressed.

Advocacy Day - Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce & Virginia Black Local Elected Officials

Join us for the Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce Advocacy Day, a pivotal event that amplifies the voices and interests of the black business community. This gathering allows us to unite with local elected officials, business owners, and community members, fostering an atmosphere of unity and shared understanding.

The Advocacy Day plays a crucial role in influencing policies that support and foster growth among businesses. By attending, you can contribute to important discussions, engage with a diverse mix of B2B and B2C participants, and expand your professional network.

Participation in the Advocacy Day also provides an opportunity to interact directly with key State officials and attend important committee meetings. As we advocate for the prosperity of the black community in Virginia, we also champion diversity and support for black-owned businesses.

Our commitment to leadership, advocacy, and service is reflected in every aspect of this event. Don't miss out on the chance to be part of a movement that continues to shape the future of black businesses in Virginia.

Join us and make a difference. Your voice matters.
