[Virtual] City Hall Connectors: Councilmember María Quiñones Sánchez


Wednesday, December 08, 2021
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Join us for a virtual conversation with Councilmember María Quiñones Sánchez, District 7, about inclusive business growth and job creation. We will discuss tackling the challenges of unemployment and slow job growth, inequity around the number of Black and brown-owned businesses, the high rate of poverty as it relates to a lack of affordable housing and increased gun violence, inadequate funding for schools, and how a reformed tax policy would benefit change for local businesses.

The City Hall Connectors series seeks to improve Philadelphia’s business atmosphere and promote inclusive growth by offering exclusive engagement opportunities for members with the City’s elected and administrative officials. Attendees have a chance to hear from, interact, and build relationships with these important decision makers, as well as offer input on how Philadelphia can further enhance its economic climate.

This event is exclusive to Chamber members. Once your registration is received, we will share a calendar invitation with Zoom information the day before the meeting. Submit your questions to Maria Flores at mflores@chamberphl.com.
