The Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance has started a new partnership to help minority-owned businesses.

The partnership is with Blackwater Branding.

Together, they're creating a minority-owned business directory. They want to help increase visibility and networking for those businesses.

A publication highlighting those places will also be made.

"And in that, black-owned businesses will be featured - their name, website, phone number, address, etc. And that will help to just provide some awareness to some of these minority-owned businesses, especially in this time," said Ryan Weaks, Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance marketing and communications director.

Businesses who sign up get a few benefits.

Registering to become part of that initiative is free.
