There’s no need to leave the neighborhood—Beverly/Morgan Park has a wide selection of shopping options. 

BAPA Supports Business Diversity

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are values that we value within BAPA and throughout our community. In 2023, we partnered with our local business associations to celebrate Black Owned Business Month in August. As part of that initiative, we created an online directory of Black owned businesses. Moving forward, we will continue that work as part of our newly formed 19th Ward Community Connections Committee, and extend our reach.
