Blackout Day

As we continue the battle for justice in our community and country, one thing we must remember is that the power is with the people.

Black people have a spending power of one trillion dollars in this country, and with that, you can send a clear message to those in charge. 

July 7th is “Blackout Day”, a day in which African Americans across the country are choosing to spend their dollars with black owned businesses.    

Let’s continue to make our communities and those who are working hard within them, strong.  We have the power, we are in this together, we are one.

There are many strong black owned businesses right here in central Virginia and we encourage you to check them out and give them your support.
