How to Support Tucson Black Owned Businesses #BLM

June 2, 2020

The Instagram fam knows exactly where I stand on the Black Lives Matter movement, and I can tell you that I personally have been an ally in real life for years. Many have taken to Instagram to spread the word, which is good but as a lot of family used to say "money talks" so let's put our money where our mouths are and support the amazing local businesses in Tucson, Arizona. 

Terri Tellez sent this incredibly detailed list to me (thank you so much) and I feel the need to share this so we can do a better job supporting our local black owned businesses this week, this month and for the years to come. Remember, change doesn't happen with one day. It' doesn't happen with one week. We must continue to show up and support every day moving forward.

If you're not able to monetarily support, it costs $0 to follow a business on Instagram, like their Facebook page or share their work and their posts. We really have no issues to not show our support in some way shape or form.
