Black lives matter.
Since it launched in 1968, Time Out has always spoken out against injustice. To stay silent as people across the world struggle against racism is to be complicit. That’s why we’re using our platform to share how you can support Black Lives Matter and other groups protesting in Chicago right now . And as the city moves one step closer toward reopening this week, we urge you to stand behind black-owned businesses throughout Chicago—these resources can help if you don’t know where to start.

More than ever before, we’re here to listen, learn and amplify voices that need to be heard.

Cause for support
Black People Eats founder Jeremy Joyce wants to help you put your money where your mouth is with a relief fund that’s raising money for black-owned restaurants in Chicago . The funds will be divided among 40 area restaurants to help rebuild, pay staff and prepare for reopening. They’ve already surpassed their $20,000 goal, but the fundraiser will continue collecting dollars through June 18. Also worth checking out?
