By: Planting People Growing Justice
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Feb. 17, 2024 - PRLog -- Planting People Growing Justice Press and Bookstore founder, Dr. Artika R. Tyner, announced that the company is participating in celebrating Choose Black-Owned Business Month. The campaign is being launched by the American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA).

"Choose Black-Owned   Business Month occurs Feb. 1-28," said Tyner. "This campaign provides resources that activate partners to spread the movement where they live. It also works to amplify each business network's efforts to promote Black-owned businesses and diversity."

PPGJ Press and Bookstore publishes children's books and is dedicated to inspiring children to find joy in reading. The company aims to help children discover the leader within and help bring about change around the world. Books support leadership development, literacy, inclusiveness, and cultural awareness. PPGJ Press and Bookstore is committed to giving a voice to new and established Black authors. The publications are representative of the BIPOC community.

Leaders are Readers and the books teach children about their African heritage, social justice and civil rights, along with contributions by African-Americans. Children are also introduced to professions and careers in STEM, the law, and the importance of voting to induce change.

Launched by the American Independent Business Alliance, the campaign is encouraging individuals and businesses to support diversity and inclusiveness in local Black-owned business enterprises. Doing so circulates consumer dollars into the economy, boosts job growth, charitable giving, and overall prosperity within communities to create strength and equitability. AMIBA also works to mitigate the effects of climate change and adapt to the damage brought on by global warming.

"We are dedicated to building strong communities that are diverse, inclusive and equitable," said Jen Risley, AMIBA Choose Indie Local Coordinator. "Choosing Black-owned businesses plays a critical role in fulfilling our mission."

PPGJ Press and Bookstore's (https://www.ppgjbooks.com/) participation in the AMIBA (https://amiba.net/) campaign is a measure of the company's commitment to its community, diversity and the prosperity of Black-owned businesses.
