Hoboken recently had a powerful, peaceful protest on June 5th, with Allies4Justice, to show solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement and to protest…
…the unjust death of George Floyd and the perpetual violence against Black people.Allies4Justice Twitter
I marched about 3 hours and stayed after to make sure I can listen and try to learn as much as I can. It was an incredibly emotional and moving experience. I am so proud to have been part of, what media outlets say, the ~10,000 people that showed support and solidarity in this movement.
I want people to know that supporting the movement has not ended. There are many ways to support the BLM movement, as I wrote about here. You can also support by buying from Black-owned businesses and supporting Black creatives, artists, entrepreneurs, etc, so make sure you keep reading.
I’ve been seeing amazing articles that showcase Black-owned businesses to support in Jersey City, but none that are specific to Hoboken. So I decided to create one.
Please note that the following businesses below were just a few I was able to gather. If I missed a businesses, please email me at Kimberleybuenoschonig@gmail.com, so I can add the Hoboken business to this list.
