Welcome, we're just getting started...

Hello, I’m Gladys Brangman, Managing Director of Business Leaders of Colors, LLC (BLOC) and you have reached the very first version of our website.

We are a group of small business owners committed to social justice . We do this by supporting our member businesses. This network was started to level the playing field and create a cooperative space for commerce that will serve the under-served business community. By joining the BLOC network, you will gain:

  • An enhanced web presence
  • Access to monthly meetups
  • Listing in our business directory
  • Access to business and financial training from Alternatives FCU
  • Connection to a thriving network of business owners committed to supporting each other.

If any of that sounds good to you, please add your business profile to the directory. I look forward to working with you!

You can also contact us anytime, info@businessleadersofcolors.com
