  1. This is a great step, but we need to do even more to empower those local Black advocacy groups who do not have the capacity to keep up with the demands put on them in preparing local Black MBE/WBE’s for those subcontracting and other opportunities. That lack of capacity continues to make it easy for majority contractors to state how they cannot find qualified Black MBE/WBE sub contractors. Thanks for HEARING MY VOICE. Mark Allen, Chairman of National Black Wall Street Chicago, NFP., a current MBE/WBE Assist Agency with the City Of Chicago
