I’ve heard from a lot of friends and in the Twitter-verse that a lot of people want to support their black community in more ways than just protesting and donations to charities/organizations. As well, I’ve seen a lot of Instagram posts and Twitter threads highlighting black-owned businesses of all kinds throughout the US.
To help bring these businesses to the forefront, I built an app that highlights and makes it easy for anyone to find black-owned businesses throughout the entire state of Georgia.
The app includes around 380 businesses right now, ranging from real estate, to lawyers, to restaurants. It has the businesses segmented by category, as well as a map view (that’s filterable) to find businesses close to you (for whenever you’re looking for some food nearby).
Lastly, the app includes a page dedicated to highlighting a few local and national organizations helping fight police brutality and supporting black communities nationwide, including links to donate to those charities and organizations directly.
Please take a look, and it you have any friends, family, coworkers, etc who live in Georgia please share it with them as well! Anyone from any community can take advantage of this application to shop smarter and to support small businesses.
Thanks so much everyone, stay safe!
