Following the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police in broad daylight, cities and towns across the US have erupted in protest over police brutality toward black citizens and systemic racism. Floyd’s killing is not an isolated case, but just the latest tragedy in an almost weekly abuse of power that must stop.

We are continually updating this list of local racial justice resources to let people in the Hudson Valley know how they can help locally. Aside from signing petitions, donating to racial justice organizations, and marching, another way to show your support is to patronize black-owned businesses.

The US's racial wealth gap reflects generations of systemic inequality in everything from education to employment to bank financing. Using your purchasing power, you can help better distribute wealth in America and lay the groundwork for longterm change. We are hoping to crowdsource the most comprehensive list of black-owned businesses in the Hudson Valley possible. This list is a work in progress, but as more people contribute information, the below database will grow and be more useful.

Add local Black-owned businesses to the database using this form.

Business owners: Find out more about our Community Grant Program, which supports marketing initiatives for Hudson Valley-based BIPOC- and women-owned small businesses, events, and regional nonprofits.

If your business was included on this list incorrectly, or you would like to be removed for other reasons, please email us.

  • Stone Wave Yoga: Tending the Flame of Personal and Communal Wellness

    In the summer of 2019, Liz Glover Wilson had just opened the second location of her burgeoning Gardiner yoga studio and wellness campus, Stone Wave Yoga, in Poughkeepsie. Like so many other small business owners in the Hudson Valley, she had no way of knowing that only months later her entire business would fundamentally change. With the pandemic’s economic and personal challenges constantly at her door, however, yoga remained the one thing that Glover Wilson knew she could count on. “A lot of the students who stayed with us this last year are hungry to learn more about the yoga tool kit because they’re seeing that it really does work,” she says.
