The Small Business Community Needs American Support Now More than Ever; Now is the Time to Salute These Entrepreneurs


WASHINGTON, D.C.
 – With this Saturday designated as Small Business Saturday – November 27thKeith Hall, president and CEO of National Association for the Self-Employed, the nation's leading advocate and resource for the self-employed and micro-businesses, today called on all Americans to celebrate the community by shopping locally with America’s small businesses.

“We encourage the American public across our country to shop local and small this Small Business Saturday,” saidKeith Hall, president and CEO of the National Association for the Self-Employed“It is our opportunity to celebrate and support America’s small business community, including the millions of solo entrepreneurs and mom-and-pop shops to gig-economy workers, who continue to drive and fuel our nation’s economy.  They, as well as many other Americans, have been deeply impacted by the COVID crisis, but remain resilient in their desire to get back to normal.”

Hall recently responded it was “not surprising” the self-employed workforce has returned to pre-pandemic levels given its resiliency, referencing a Pew Research Study. He also penned an op-ed in The Hill imploring our elected leaders in Washington to come together to support our nation’s small business community on issues ranging from COVID relief to affordable health care and ensuring tax equity and fairness.

“Please join me in celebrating America’s true entrepreneurial spirit by shopping local across our nation and supporting our nation’s small businesses. It has been our pleasure to give voice and continue to support our community, including our members and the millions of our nation’s smallest businesses, by ensuring they have the tools and resources to thrive as we climb out of this pandemic,” concluded Hall.
