DENVER-AREA WOMEN LAUNCH DIGITAL GREEN BOOK CAMPAIGN TO HIGHLIGHT SAFE, WELCOMING BUSINESS AND TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES FOR BLACK AMERICANS
Denver, CO (BlackNews.com) — Birdwatching.
This American reality is the impetus behind Crystal Egli and Parker McMullen-Bushman’s goal of creating a Digital Green Book for Black Americans to research and patronize businesses that champion inclusivity and provide welcoming environments both when traveling and managing the business of daily life.
The Digital Green Book will hold businesses and public spaces accountable not only for their intent but for their impact.”
Both women are working mothers with full-time careers, so the project is being crowdfunded through a GoFundMe campaign to hire a developer, and will rely on crowdsourced information about inclusive businesses, upholding and reflecting the tradition of the original Green Book.
While the Digital Green Book will focus initially on enhancing experiences for Black communities, Egli and McMullen-Bushman are also planning to include other underrepresented communities as the project grows.
