New Survey of Black Consumers

The Loop 21 wants to get a clear perspective on the economic status of Black America from Black America.


Stumbled upon this on Jack and Jill Politics. The Loop 21 is conducting an economic survey of Black America and is looking for participation from the community.

Everyone in the African American community is encouraged to take part and we would love to alert your readers so they can participate and add their voice.  Our mission is to look behind the statistics and commentary on the black economic condition in order to give voice to the economic priorities and concerns from the community itself.  The end goal is to offer insights from Black folks from all walks of life—students, blue collar workers, lawyers, doctors, and those looking for work—that decision-makers can use to craft effective solutions to today’s economic challenges.

The survey, launched April 9th, runs until the 23rd. It is the largest study of African-American consumers and it would be to participate. They promise there's no 'Negro' listing and it only takes ten minutes.
