Injustice in our company has become more apparent than ever. As a nation, we have witnessed the tragedies, mistreatments, and prejudices in our county’s official system. Awe and anger are hard to displace after this continuous abuse. However, just as this country can be so torn apart, it can also come together. We as a company want to take a stand to enforce positivity in our communities that we love so much.
Our company is founded on the belief of the American Dream. That dream should have no concern with race, gender, religion, or status. We are proud to say that we are a minority-owned and operated company with a diverse team of talented men and women.
We believe that this country was built by immigrants. More so, it was built by perseverance. The current situation is disheartening and we have an unshakable determination to change for the better. In our core values of entrepreneurship, we are committed to put a spotlight on African American business owners.
On Tuesday, June 2, the date that marked the 2020 “Blackout Tuesday,” we wanted to do more than stand with the movement for encouraging the celebration of the black communities across the U.S., we wanted to actually celebrate it. Since that Tuesday, we have been sharing a black-owned business in Pittsburgh daily to spread the word on what makes our city so great.
We love this chance to remind people of small businesses to support, especially in this delicate economy of our city opening back up.
We will be sharing a business each day, Monday through Friday, on our Instagram and Facebook stories, then recapping our week’s picks on LinkedIn. We are hoping this gives people a chance to discover new businesses or remind people to visit them.
Please be sure to be support your community in this time, especially the small business economy that depends on both new customers and a loyal neighborhood.
