Virtual Town Hall: “The Progressive Grocer”

jeff brown shoprite

Wednesday, July 16 at 6–7pm
Since 2004, Jeff Brown, CEO of Brown’s Super Stores, has been on the frontlines of Philadelphia’s pursuit of racial equity and social justice. Through his 12 supermarkets, many in food deserts, he has not only been feeding inner-city, predominantly African-American families, he has also provided them with de-facto community centers.

Join us for a conversation between Brown and Citizen co-founder Larry Platt that will touch on the innovative strategies Brown has used to empower Philadelphians where they live and eat; his work with other entrepreneurs through the 30 Day Fund to provide forgivable loans during Covid-19 to thousands of small businesses; and how we can turn this moment of racial awakening into an opportunity to lessen the gap between haves and have-nots.

This event is free, and streamed through the Crowdcast platform. You will receive login details by email after you RSVP here.
