Theres a lot of Black-owned businesses in Toronto that we don’t know about or can’t find well Global Black Alliance (GBA) just launched an app to solve that problem. The Global Black Alliance is a Toronto based Organization that seeks to connect the Black community on a global scale. They’re committed to advancing equity, growth, and opportunity not only for the Black community but for all marginalized groups.
The GBA has now released an app to help them accomplish their goals named Real Ones. Real Ones is a free app that you can carry around with you on your phone that shows Black-owned businesses by proximity. You can say it’s a GPS for Black owned businesses & allies.
