If you’re wondering how you can put your money where you mouth is, when it comes to supporting the Black community here in Sacramento, this post is for you.
First, be sure to check out the Black Chamber of Commerce. You can find many Black-owned businesses using their member directory, and if you can’t find a service you’re looking for, you can contact them for further info.
