Black Owned Business Of the Hudson Valley- Support your community

Updated: Jun 16

In the wake of George Floyd's death and the nationwide protests against racial injustice and police brutality, it's important not to give up on the momentum and continue the fight to dismantle systemic racism in our society. There is an outpouring of support to organizations such as the George Floyd Memorial Fund, Minnesota Freedom Fund, and Campaign Zero, but our work should not stop here, or with merely an Instagram post or a hashtag.

Continue the #BlackLivesMatter conversation with those around you and further your own education by diving into this reading list by black authors. In addition, an actionable way to support your POC allies is to shop from black-owned businesses—not just today, but every day. If you're not sure where to begin, we have created a list for you to begin with
