As civil unrest washes over our nation, local residents are choosing to stand against injustice by attending local protests, signing online petitions, donating to nonprofit groups, and voicing concerns to elected officials.

But there are many ways to combat systemic racial inequality. One effective strategy is to simply put your money where your mouth is and make a commitment to support Black-owned businesses.

Milwaukee is home to many amazing Black-owned restaurants that offer a wide range of delicious options from barbeque and Southern comfort food to vegetarian, vegan, African and Caribbean fare. There are also numerous food-based businesses (from snacks to desserts) that you can support.

So go out and take advantage of curbside pick-up. Support a new restaurant you may have never tried before and show up for our city and the entrepreneurs who contribute their talents to our beloved community.
