We're excited to announce the return of our third annual Holiday Gift Guide, a small business directory featuring more than 300 small businesses across the country. The guide is a great way to spark inspiration for your hard-to-buy-for friends and family and to look for something special for everyone on your list.
 

Small Business Majority and Administrator Guzman have signed an agreement to collaborate on a new monthly webinar series called ‘The Bottom Line.’ We were joined by small business owners and small business organizations to commemorate the new collaboration. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Small Business Majority will host a webinar series on timely topics aimed at informing and connecting small business owners with SBA resources and tools to meet today’s challenges.

Small Business Majority has released a new opinion poll that explores the intersection of small business issues—particularly pertaining to workforce—and criminal justice reform. The poll covers small business opinions from six states, and reveals bipartisan support for criminal justice reforms, including Clean Slate policies and occupational licensing reforms.

Small Business Majority recently launched its new Alliance for a Resilient Small Business Economy to convene a diverse group of partner organizations in pursuit of a common goal: To break down systemic barriers that currently block equitable access to business capital and assistance. 

Hundreds of small business owners and business organizations added their names to Small Business Majority's letter urging Congress to pass the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. The letter outlines how small businesses stand to benefit from the legislation, namely by improving access to healthcare, increasing tax enforcement on large corporations, and making meaningful climate change investments.
