Shop Good’s Local San Diego Gifting Faves
Buy Black SD – Greater San Diego Area: This free online resource is a great directory for locating Black owned brands to support and spend your gifting budget with! Black businesses hire a significantly higher percentage of Black people than non-Black owned businesses. And as we seek to lower unemployment and increase economic independence, this should inspire us to support Black-owned brands, especially during these difficult times as unemployment is higher than it was just a few months ago. Further, Black entrepreneurs struggle to access the resources to bring successful businesses into our communities and supporting Black-owned businesses will further provide the resources they need to thrive. Spending money with Black brands will help shine light on the disproportionate resources available to Black owned businesses so that we can focus on ways to improve this institutional inequality.
