Black Woman Owned Juice Bar in MPLS

 Lease signed in March and The Dripping Root is going to have a home in the Longfellow Neighborhood of Minneapolis. Hopeful to open the doors by July. However, COVID -19 struck and everything was put on hold. Kitchen equipment and the Juicer ready to be delivered. However, the system was overwhelmed by funding requests and she has enough money to get started, but NOT enough to finish. Please help her build in solidarity with those businesses just down the street, those businesses in every community who are having to rebuild. Black Lives Matter! The Dripping Root Juice Bar will be a place of PEACE, LOVE & TOGETHERNESS "My business happens to be on Minnehaha in the Longfellow Neighborhood. I am so thankful that my journey didn’t end before it actually started. Through all of this, The Dripping Root still stands. My heart aches for my city , my heart aches for my people, my heart aches for the human kind. I am a black woman. Single mother of a black son. I am working daily to not only help bring health & wellness into our community, but to  build a place of PEACE, LOVE & TOGETHERNESS, to bring us back to our roots with healthy eating habits & to be proud of the skin we are in. NO JUSTICE NO PEACE!" - Catiesha Pierson, owner of The Dripping Root "WHEN YOU FEEL GOOD, YOU GLOW DIFFERENT" - Catiesha Pierson, owner of The Dripping Root PLEASE SUPPORT! THANK YOU ♥️
