Help us Create a List of Local Businesses with Under-represented Owners in Ballard!

Ballard is filled with storefronts and restaurants owned and operated by under-represented community members! As a consumer, your dollar can go a long way to encourage and support under-represented business owners. Next time you make a purchase, consider using your dollar(s) to support these businesses.

We are highlighting racial, cultural, disability and LGBTQ+ type business owners using Intentionalist listings as our starting point. With your help we would love to include all local under-represented business owners. Know of a business that is not listed?

We can contact the owner and request to add them to our list. If you see an error, please contact us at
