MPAC is a founding member of #InvestBlack2020 --the global movement to invest $1B into Black business. MPAC is also a founding partner of the Black Upstart's #MyBlackReceipts to spend $5M into Black businesses. Both initiatives officials launched Juneteenth 2020.
MPAC opened Juneteenth with Newark's only Black male yoga instructor, donating $2500 in yoga mats to the community and enjoying sun salutations overlooking the City.
Additionally, our #Jerseygrown Foundation partners The Gem Project welcomed us to NJ Student Blackout. We joined thousands of NJ students to demand police, education, economic, and social justice reform. NO more Anti-black racism. #MPACTheWorld
