As Penn’s Village works to improve our inclusiveness and diversity efforts, we have committed to use the products and services of Black-owned businesses whenever possible.   We know many of our members want to do the same thing.  We’ve assembled this list of helpful resources to expand your purchasing power in the Black community.  This list will be updated periodically – please let us know if you have additional suggestions!
