Virtual Town Hall - Small Business vs. Monopoly Power

  • 04 Mar 2024
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Virtually via ZOOM


Join independent businesses from across the country for a virtual town hall event to mark our progress and build momentum to rein in monopoly power and level the playing field for small, independent businesses.

FTC Chair Lina Khan will join advocates and small businesses to provide a glimpse into today’s most important anti-monopoly actions and hear directly from small business owners.

Monday, March 4, 2024

Previous start time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET

NEW start time: 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM ET


Small businesses are in crisis. Decades of pro-monopoly policies have allowed a few giant corporations to consolidate control of many industries. The results are fewer choices for consumers, inflated prices, supply chain vulnerabilities, and “Anywhere, USA” communities.

But small businesses are fighting back and seeing results. Federal, state, and local policymakers have been taking action to level the playing field. The FTC filed a major antitrust case to break Amazon’s grip on e-commerce. The agency has vowed to dust-off a long-dormant law to rein in the predatory practices of big retail chains. States are considering new anti-monopoly laws. And much more.

Register now to join a nationwide conversation about how independent businesses can keep this momentum going!

Co-hosted by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and Small Business Rising partner organizations.
