“Directly investing in a Black business is a crucial way that people can divest from the infrastructure of systemic racism that fuels police violence, mass incarceration, and mass inequity, and invest directly into Black community development, which results in a more just and equitable environment for those communities and those around them.

“While this effort is necessary there also things that white patients must consider so that they are building well-being rather than compounding harm.” -Cir L’Bert, Jr.
