Minority-Owned Businesses Harmed by Looting in MSP

After the demonstrations in response to the tragic murder of George Floyd, many minority-owned businesses in the Twin Cities were ransacked or set in flames. Families saw their livelihoods, the products of years of hard work, ruined in one night. 

This destruction only exacerbates the economic and societal conditions of racism. As such, to truly combat systemic inequities, it is vital to help minority entrepreneurs and businesses during these extremely challenging times.
 
All donations will go directly to the Metropolitan Economic Development Association (Meda) — a Minneapolis-based nonprofit that supports minority businesses in the communities most affected by recent distressing events.
