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 ([email protected])
Anti-Racist Actions You Can Take Now:

Local Minority-Owned Business You Can Support Now:
Another Facebook Group to join…Search for and ask to join a private page with over 10,000 members, “GreensboroBLACK Food Mob”. You will have to read a few rules and answer a couple of questions before being allowed in, but once inside, you will find a smorgasbord of businesses pictures, videos, and menus, all focused on Greensboro’s eclectic food community. You could begin by exploring the Discussion and Media tabs at the top. Although a little confusing at first, with just a little effort, it becomes a tantalizing experience and promises to create interest in never-heard-before restaurants and food trucks! Please contact Traci if you need any further help.
