LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Change Today, Change Tomorrow has launched a new initiative to bring Black-owned businesses to Butchertown.

Change Today, Change Tomorrow said the storefront exposure will help the businesses grow and increase their customer base. They plan on providing wholesale and pop-up vending for businesses to expand in other ways.

"This space provides hope; this space provides access. We at Change Today, Change Tomorrow believe in barrier free access, so this is literally a space for Black business owners to have barrier free access," Nannie Grace Croney said.

Pocket Change is an addition to the non-profit's “Change Your Spending” campaign which encourages people to redirect their dollars to locally owned Black businesses.
