The Liberty Project

Growing out of Mayor Harrell’s One Seattle Initiative to “build a thriving, innovative, and equitable city we are all proud to call home,” the Liberty Project Seattle is a collaboration between The City of Seattle, Tabor 100, the Consulting and Business Development Center at the University of Washington Foster School of Business, and the Business Foundry at Seattle University’s Albers School of Business.

Our goal is to grow Black/African American-owned businesses to earn 7.9% of business revenues in Seattle which will match the 7.9% of Seattle’s population who are Black/African American.
