Red Tricycle is an anti-racist company against the systemic racism toward Black people and all people of color. We stand for justice, equality and humanity, and we support our Black families, co-workers, partners and community. One of the ways to do that directly is by supporting Black-owned businesses, many of which have already been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. From Mississippi-inspired BBQ and Creole cuisine to vegan skincare, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites below!

AoSA Coffee is a local fave and not only can you get a pretty amazing cup of coffee, but a baked good and tasty pastry, too!
