Small businesses are the back bone of our country. They provide unique experiences that bigger brands are unable to. Not only do they help to build up our communities, they also provide meaningful jobs that foster growth. This year small businesses took the biggest hit and it’s our job, as members of their community, to reciprocate the support.

Join The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation in celebrating some well deserving small businesses.
