The 100 Black Men of Syracuse’s Economic Empowerment Program, which presents workshops and develops strategies to meet its goals, is based on the 100 Black Men of America’s Economic Empowerment Program.
100 Black Men of Syracuse embraces economic empowerment as a essential component toward creating a just society. We believe economic growth must be fostered for all citizens of the United States. Economic empowerment provides the opportunity for individuals and communities to create their own dreams, pursue them and ultimately perpetuate them by establishing the mechanisms to sustain generational wealth. Our stair-steps approach is used to develop initiatives that promote economic self-sufficiency through:
- financial literacy
- building family wealth
100 Black Men of Syracuse partners with economic development organizations and government agencies to develop and provide programs and strategies that strengthen the black community’s economic base. And, we support businesses that create employment and build upon home ownership in the black community.
