#BuildBlack #BuyBlack #BankBlack

Buying products from #VerifiedBlackOwnedBusinesses is a direct way to keep our dollars circulating in Black communities while building Black collective wealth. Around 41% of Black-owned businesses have shuttered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe that now, more than ever, it is important for us to support Black entrepreneurship and make sure these remaining businesses survive and thrive! We have to redouble our commitment to #BuyBlack.

Go to verifiedblackowned.org for information about Black-led community-based organizations and Black-owned businesses in our community. Additional products and resources can be found at www.webuyblack.com and on the Official Black Wall Street app.
