Now more than ever, we think that it’s vital that we support the minority-owned businesses in our community. We want to highlight some of the amazing businesses in Coachella Valley that are owned and operated by the black and Latinx communities. We hope that in doing so, we can help bolster their business and bring attention to some incredible businesses.

It is important for all of us here at Libra to support our community. We want to highlight these businesses because we think they’re special and add value to the community around us. Business is about partnership and we think that ideal has been lost, instead pushing others down to bolster our own path. We want to change that. We want to make a difference in our community and bring attention to the businesses around us. If we float, we float together.
