Rebuild Legacy Salon

My name is Mechelle Hooper from Gardena but have worked in Long Beach for 25 years on 5/31/20 the salon I work at Legacy Salon  a Black owned Salon  in Long Beach, Ca  along with 5 other small businesses were looted and then burned down to the ground . It’s a tragedy that these businesses have been closed down due to Covid 19  for 2.5 months and no income , then  this. I am a stylist at Legacy Salon with 4 other stylist who have been friends for two decades..We have served the LB community for over 20 years and to have our  livelihood stolen from us overnight is devastating. Most of us over 50 some over 60 . We agree change has got to come , times have  to be different . We support peaceful protests.   Where do we pick up the pieces. Trying to figure out how we’re gonna feed our families, pay our bills, buy new equipment,  or even the simple things . I’m asking that we come together and make a change in these people’s  lives who have been devastated and dramatically impacted by this riot.
