When millions of small businesses were forced to close due to COVID-19, we took action in a big way. In just 5 weeks, we created Small Business Live, a one-day musical experience to raise money for the small businesses hit hardest by COVID-19, with a focus on those run by women and people of color.

Artists like Ms. Lauryn Hill, 2 Chainz, Brittany Howard and Leon Bridges delivered unforgettable performances from unique locations, and others joined to share stories from the businesses they know and love.

The result? $1MM in donations for the Accion Opportunity Fund, 9.7MM live stream viewers, and most importantly, an outpouring of love and support for the small businesses that need us most.
