Congresswoman Terri Sewell

“As an advocate for small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs, I am committed to supporting initiatives like the Western Micro Business Accelerator program that provides small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs with the resources necessary to thrive in today’s economy. Investments like these are critical to creating thriving local economies, and I am excited to see the impact the second cohort will have on Alabama's 7th Congressional District!.”
