Shaping Equity For The
Black Community

Introducing the Cooperative Economic Empowerment Movement (CEEM)

At CEEM, our mission is clear: to establish true parity for the Black Community. We envision a future where economic equality isn't just an ideal, but a lived reality for everyone, regardless of race.

CEEM stands as a beacon of cooperative economics. We are a self-governing, democratic entity, wholly owned and operated by our members. Here, every voice matters equally, ensuring that our collective journey toward economic empowerment is steered by the very people it aims to uplift.

Why a Cooperative?

Our choice of a cooperative model is deliberate. It embodies the essence of equity—where each member holds one share and one vote. This framework is not just our strategy; it's our statement. It represents our belief in a world where everyone possesses the necessary resources to lead lives marked by autonomy and liberation.

Addressing the Challenge Head-On

Investment should yield returns, irrespective of one's race, creed, or gender. Yet, prevailing systems often favor a select few while placing undue barriers on others, particularly affecting the Black community. This status quo is unacceptable to us.

We differentiate between equality and equity. While both are noble pursuits, our focus is on equity—the practical path to ensuring everyone has what they need to succeed. This vision has yet to become our reality, but we are committed to changing that.


Our Call to Action: Achieving Parity

Change is our vehicle, and parity is our destination. As a cooperative and a community, we are dedicated to embodying this principle, striving to create a future where equity is not just an aspiration but a universal achievement.


Join us at CEEM as we work tirelessly to transform our shared dreams of economic parity into tangible outcomes for the Black Community. Together, we can pave the way for a world characterized by fairness, freedom, and true empowerment.

We want to achieve parity for Black folks — professionally and financially, individually and collectively. Because, when we achieve parity for the Black community, it works for the good and benefit of everyone.
