Commencing noon Friday, November 20, 2020, members of the Silicon Valley Coalition of Ethnic Chambers (Hispanic, Vietnamese, Filipino, Chinese and Black Chambers of Commerce) and their partners will unite to host the inaugural Silicon Valley Heritage Expo, a multi-cultural digital marketplace.

This ‘virtual’ information-packed, family-friendly, technology-driven exposition is designed to stimulate commerce for local small businesses while showcasing the best of our ethnic cultures through food, art, entertainment and business. The day-long event will include "Live Networking" sessions from 6:00 until 7:00 pm. Register at

Now is the time to embrace each other’s culture to better understand how we can come together, support each other and live together peacefully. Dr. Martin Luther King said, "People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other…We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools." – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Carl Davis Jr, president of the Silicon Valley Black Chamber, exclaimed, "It’s our mission to transform Silicon Valley into one big community that supports its local small businesses and recognizes, honors, and even celebrates the diversity of our valley."
