In collaboration with the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership and local small business Creature Feature Design, the SBDC created two videos featuring ways retailers and restaurants are enacting CDC and PA Department of Health guidance to keep their employees and customers safe as they reopen.
The Lewisburg Downtown Partnership was created to ensure that downtown Lewisburg remained the heart and soul of Lewisburg, as such we find it imperative that we publicly acknowledge the suffering we are going through as a nation.
The LDP commits to doing all we can to create constructive spaces where justice and peace can flourish. We must work harder towards encouraging a racially and culturally diverse local business community.
Our vision of having downtown Lewisburg be the cultural and economic magnet for the region greatly depends on us, the business community, to cultivate diversity of thought and provide space for all races, ages, and genders in our town.
We have much work to do in this country, and indeed in our own community, to acknowledge and shift a legacy begun hundreds of years ago. The LDP is a community non-profit organization that condemns racism in all of its forms. We recognize that we must do better and we are committed to that effort. While we offer these words of assurance and support, we recognize that our actions going forward must speak to our sincere promise. As we approach the hard work of creating our next 5 year strategic plan we commit to exploring and implementing what we can do as an organization to foster this process in our community.
