Former White House Advisor Steve Bannon & Former Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski to Headline 1st Annual Economic Summit
for African-American Entrepreneurs
Washington, DC - Black Americans For A Better Future (BAFBF), a Republican 527 Political Action Committee whose sole focus is on the African-American Entrepreneur, is proud to announce its first annual Economic Policy Summit featuring luncheon speaker, Corey Lewandowski and closing speaker Steve Bannon. The 2017 Economic Summit is scheduled for Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at the Phoenix Park Hotel from 8:00am - 3:00pm. The Economic Summit begins with a VIP reception on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm.
This Economic Summit will focus on connecting African-American entrepreneurs with political decision makers in order to provide members of Congress with an opportunity hear and respond to the policy concerns of these entrepreneurs. African-American purchasing power was more than $1.2 Trillion in 2016. People do business with people they know. This summit will provide a platform for Republicans to discuss ideas that may be helpful to African-American entrepreneurs.
“I am very optimistic that this Republican congress and this Republican White House will promote very strong conservative, pro-business policies that will allow small and minority businesses to flourish and grow,” said BAFBF Chairman and Founder Raynard Jackson.
“Raynard is a good friend and was an early supporter of this President when it was not fashionable to do so, especially within the African-American community. So I am thrilled to be able to keynote the luncheon for his Economic Policy summit with Black entrepreneurs,” stated Lewandowski.
This two-day event will also feature Republican members of Congress who will be speaking throughout the day on Wednesday, the 27th. Those guests who have been confirmed include:
Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (R-AZ);
Congressman Ken Buck (R-CO);
Former Congressman Tom Davis (R-VA), Director of Federal Government Affairs, Deloitte;
Corey Lewandowski, President, Lewandowski Strategic Advisors;
Steve Bannon, Former White House Strategist and Executive Chairman for Breitbart.
I am excited to participate in the BAFBF Economic Policy Summit with Black entrepreneurs. Raynard is a friend and has been a tireless advocate of getting more African-Americas involved in our movement. What better way than by helping these entrepreneurs grow their businesses with conservative, pro-business economic policies,” said Steve Bannon.
Mr. Bannon is set to close out the Summit speaking at 2:00pm and will be taking questions from the audience of entrepreneurs for the last half-hour of the event.
