When and where
Thursday, July 29, 2021
2:00pm ET

Please join Small Business Majority, Faith in Public Life, 9to5 Georgia and the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute for a virtual listening session to share what matters most, what’s working well and what challenges you are facing as a rural small business owner.

We are looking for small business owners, solo entrepreneurs, independent contractors or freelancers to join us to share their stories and perspectives. As businesses begin to reopen, we want to hear from you about:

  • What challenges you faced during the pandemic
  • What challenges you are currently facing
  • How your business is faring today
  • What policies are most important to you as a small business owner

During this session, we will also share resources to navigate safely reopening your small business and innovative ways to build consumer confidence. This feedback will inform our organizations as we prepare policy development, outreach strategies, programmatic needs, technical assistance and accessible program delivery for rural small business owners.
