Many of us are looking for ways to support the movement happening around the country. And it’s difficult - paralyzing, even - to know what to do. But one thing has become abundantly clear: We need to better support the Black community. Not just this weekend, or “until all of this is over.” Always.
One way to show solidarity is to support Black-owned food trucks. In a time when it’s already incredibly difficult for businesses to stay afloat, it’s more important than ever to show up for the people and places that continue to feed us. We’ll be updating this list constantly, so email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which trucks should be included, and we’ll work on adding them as quickly as possible.
Please also consider donating to organizations fighting for racial justice - like the ACLU, NAACP, George Floyd Memorial Fund, Know Your Rights Camp, Black Visions Collective, Reclaim The Block, as well as the The Peoples’ City Council Freedom Fund.
