Cincinnati Enquirer: It’s breaks my heart seeing all the damage done to our businesses. I have struggled with processing how damage like this could be necessary. But to those silenced and ignored, this is how we are finally heard. •
Below I have a link to a list of all those damaged due to the riots via @enquirer(updated as of Saturday night) •
Please do what you can to keep yourself and those you love safe. Many businesses have already boarded up. If you see one who hasn’t yet, ask if there’s anything you can do to help. •
Keep supporting local. Many businesses were planning on re-opening due to quarantine today, but now cannot. We need to do our part to bring justice to our country and help those effected in our community.

Stay safe Cincinnati❤️ https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2020/06/01/cincinnati-city-council-briefed-looting-damage-during-protests/5304969002/
