Can we restore the California Dream? Join us with BizFed CEO Tracy Hernandez as she discusses what you can do as a small business owner in California . Tracy Hernandez is a narrative-transforming leader who has spent more than three decades convening and giving voice to diverse thinkers on myriad platforms. She is the Founding CEO of the Los Angeles County Business Federation, widely known as “BizFed.”
The nonprofit alliance of business networks is a grassroots advocacy powerhouse that advances policies, projects, and pragmatic solutions that benefit working Angelenos and the health of the economy. BizFed is unique in its successful organization and unification of more than 225 organizations representing 410,000 companies employing 5 million people throughout the greater Los Angeles region. Its first franchise sister organization, BizFed Central Valley, mobilizes another 80 united groups from Bakersfield to Fresno.
Tracy and her close-knit team are proud to amplify the voices of a vast array of employers and civic leaders, large and small, representing all sectors and communities. Their work impacts decisions at all levels of government.
BizFed has grown in scope and impact since its launch in 2008. Tracy also founded and oversees BizFed Institute and BizFed Political Action Committee. The Institute is a 501(c)(3) that acts as the data center and educational arm of BizFed. The PAC identifies, trains, and elects pro-jobs candidates and is the only business political action committee focused on local elections in all 88 cities in L.A. County.
We want California to come back. Will you join us in this fight?
