Friends and Fam,
It’s been over a month since the opening of our new brick and mortar bakery. There have been long hours, celebration, and joy, and we are soaking up every bit of it.
Sadly, we have also had to endure racist attacks on email, phone, Yelp, and social media. As an Arab bakery committed to social justice, we are acutely aware of the troubling path this country is on. We have seen through this presidential administration how Arab and Muslims, immigrants, Black and Brown communities, LGBTQ people, women, and poor people are increasingly subjected to threats and attacks.
Despite how difficult these attacks are, we keep our heads high. If there’s anything we know, it’s that our community gives us the courage to speak up. We are overwhelmed by the messages of love and support we have received from you all. Thank you.
Fake reviews and online bullying won’t deter us. We remain committed to our vision of building strong and resilient communities, and will continue to do so by building a sanctuary space for people to come together across cultures, generations, and experiences. And of course, providing delicious, nourishing food and good jobs for our community.
If you want to support our business, come to our space and feel the warmth, stay engaged with us through our email list (click here), and invite others to be a part of this beautiful network.
