Support a Local Black Business

From Boston to SF, these black-owned businesses empower and give back in so many ways. It’s about time you became a regular. 



Ula Café - Boston

This Jamaica Plain community bakery and café makes a social impact while keeping things sustainable. Swing by for a locally-sourced meal. And order one for a stranger (in person or online) with their Pay it Forward program.


the silver room

Silver Room – Chicago

Window shop—and then shop shop—at this Hyde Park boutique, community hub, and arts space. With a mission to create a global community through art and culture, founder Eric Williams curates authentic spaces where creativity can thrive.


fia's fab finds

Fia’s Fab Finds – Washington, D.C.

Buying second-hand helps cut your footprint. And that’s why we love Fia’s. Go hunt treasures at this inclusive thrift shop, dedicated to plus-size—and every-other-size—fashion.


Oakland's own

Oakland’s Own – San Francisco

A family-run, community-focused, and seriously stylish apparel brand. Plus, every purchase gives back to the community by funding youth empowerment mentoring services and more.


the green jar

The Green Jar – Toronto 

Green Jar knows—when it comes to eco-living, the small steps make a huge difference. From stainless steel straws to bamboo utensils, they’re making an impact with everyday essentials that cut waste. Oh, and they’ll plant a tree for every purchase.



Yam – New York City

Morgan Thomas—Yam's founder—channels her late mother for all her designs. Nostalgically styled and crafted from deadstock materials (that means recycled and second hand), her made-to-order jewelry is truly one of a kind.
