“LGBT-owned businesses have bounced back strong in the past two years thanks to critical bipartisan investments like the Restaurant Revitalization Fund and the Paycheck Protection Program included in the American Rescue Plan,” said Justin Nelson, Co-Founder & President of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). “As the economy continues to add jobs and unemployment reaches historic lows, the thousands of LGBT-owned businesses across America that contribute $1.7 trillion to the American economy, urge Congress to continue to work with President Biden to build on this economic momentum and find opportunities for bipartisan collaboration to support business owners, the people they employ, and the communities they serve.”
