The Anti-Racism Committee

As a tangible tool of our commitment to reparation, the Anti Racism Committee hosted by Pelham Executive Meeting created a listing of BIPOC Owned Businesses for Friends to monetarily support.  This endeavour acknowledges that BIPOC folk have been and are victims of systemic racism.  This listing hopes to redress the harm by encouraging purchase of goods and services from BIPOC Owned Businesses.

In addition to the Ontario businesses listed below, here is an article to help promote Black-owned sites and stores that lists more than 150 Black-owned businesses in North America. The article is here:
