How to Support Black-Owned Businesses


This is long overdue.


In the recent wake of protests and calling for police reform and the waking-up of white persons about their privileged & fragility & silence we want to be a part of systemic change, which includes where we spend our dollar and who we work with. We want to amplify the incredible Black-owned companies here in Portland and want to help equip you as an organizer, a mom, an entrepreneur or a regular Jane to find them and utilize their services.

We are starting to use the resource MercatusPDX which hosts a directory of Black-owned businesses in this area.

There are SO many more service providers & artisans & food related businesses. These are just a few to get you (and ourselves) to get voting with our dollar and to invest in the Black community to see them thrive + succeed!

A note: We have been learning & listening and continue to pursue understanding as we join in this new wave of seeking equality for black people and helping to change systemic racism. Our heart in this post is to amplify BIPOC businesses in the Portland area and to align ourselves with them. If anything in this post comes across as offensive or disrespectful or not in an allyship mentality, we are open to feedback. You can email Amy at amy.puckett@tidyfox.llc directly so we can quickly make amends. Much love + hope, TidyFox
