Building Black Bed Stuy believes that black liberation is key on the journey to self sufficiency within our community. Creating resources for building generational wealth gives us power and independence. Building Black Bedstuy aims to amplify that message.
Our mission is to protect, preserve, and liberate the black community within Bed Stuy and beyond. Our focus is to help provide financial aid to existing businesses and organizations within black communities. By investing in black businesses and organizations that help to uplift the black community, we can start to build economic power.
For round one we raised funds for three businesses - Life Wellness, The Watoto Free School, and The Black Power Blueprint.
For round two we've asked our community to nominate three local businesses that uphold the mission we aim to preserve. Those businesses are Little Sun People, Dwana Dance, and The Bed-Stuy Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
