Over the last few weeks, cities and communities across the country have finally heeded the call to take action and stand up for the Black community. From corporations and government leaders to local churches and community groups, the voices have been amplified and we are open and ready for real change.
But when the protests have ended and the marches have stopped, how can we start changing the system? While there’s no easy answer, there’s one really simple way we can continue to rally and that’s through supporting Black businesses.
While we always encourage you to “Shop Local”, let’s give a little boost to these Black-owned businesses; including restaurants, business, and financial services, home and family services, fashion, and wellness. No matter where you live and what you are looking for, you can support them in your community!
