Iowa City Moms’ Guide to Black-Owned Businesses in the Corridor

This week on Iowa City Moms, we will be sharing a number of resources in support of our local black community.  We encourage you to share these resources with your friends and family.  Also, please continue to talk to your children about the events that are unfolding in our country; their education on these important matters begins at home, and we have a responsibility to teach them the truth. Our ICM team is learning alongside you, and we hope that these resources can be of service to you and your families.

Today, we have compiled a list of black-owned businesses in the corridor. Please take a few moments to click on each business and check out the products and services that they have to offer.  If you are able to make a purchase at this time, we encourage you to do so.  If not, there are plenty of other ways to support them: give them a “follow” on social media, share them on your own social channels, and recommend them to friends and family who may be interested in supporting them.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about all of these wonderful businesses and business owners in our community.
