Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Supporting the Movement for Black Lives

The past few weeks have been filled with support for Black lives and racial injustice. There are many ways to participate in this movement. Some are protesting. Some are creating awareness. Some are educating. Some are choosing to spend their money in Black owned establishments. Whatever your role the most important thing is to choose.

Buying Black Owned

One of the most detrimental effects of racism is economic. From this country's founding racism and economic disenfranchisement were linked as slave holders benefited from the free labor of the enslaved. Benefits that have only multiplied with each generation. Buying from Black-owned establishments help circulate money within the Black community and is an important way of addressing the racial economic gap.
