The DEI Office at RPCS supports Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and small family-owned businesses. These businesses are owned by folx who might identify differently. Our initial focus will be in the Baltimore area, with possible expansion in Maryland and beyond! We will share our business of choice for the month, and if you choose to support them too, it would be much appreciated!
If you are aware of BIPOC or small family-owned businesses we should consider supporting, please send us an email. Thank you!
