Save Our Economy: Protect Main Street Jobs & Businesses

The Austin Independent Business Alliance (AIBA) has supported this initiative to better help our local businesses.

Hundreds of thousands of small businesses shuttered by COVID-19 are at risk of closing for good in the coming weeks without direct subsidies. Very small businesses and those with historically limited access to capital are especially vulnerable.

I love the leadership of AIBA and the camaraderie they foster. Of all the organizations in Central Texas, no one does a better job of bringing local business together and empowering us in the community through our collective voices. Thank you AIBA!
