Take the 15 Percent Pledge
Recognizing that black people make up 15% of the
U.S. population, the 15 Percent Pledge is a campaign that asks retailers to dedicate at least 15% of their shelf space and merchandising mix to black-owned brands. We’ve sourced a list of amazing black-owned businesses for you to discover, including existing NY NOW and emerging brands– click here.
