The Peace and Social Concerns Committee is working to help New Garden Friends Meeting incorporate more immediate social and economic justice actions into our everyday lives. Thus, every weekly newsletter will include one Anti-Racist Action suggestion and one website whereby members can find minority-owned business to support, if they so choose. The Meeting is not endorsing or advertising these businesses; we just feel it’s important to spread dollars more equitably to all community members and entrepreneurs. Suggestions for future ideas/submissions can be sent to Traci Claywell, 336-554-1534 by call/text or email to (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Anti-Racist Actions You Can Take Now:
SEEK OUT and shop at Local, Black/Minority-Owned Business this holiday season. Explore shops/business websites and/or contact directly to learn more about them. Consider gift certificates for future shopping opportunities once COVID has abated. In essence, be pro-active about learning about local buying opportunities in Black-owned businesses in our town.
