Keeping Our Shops on the Block

LISC LA co-hosted a series of 5 webinars to support “Main Street” mom and pop businesses in the neighborhoods we work. The 1-hr sessions provided small businesses with information on emergency financial resources, in-language support, and creative strategies to keep doors open during the pandemic.
