Republic Associates’ Black Owned Businesses

A recent study by the U.S. Federal Reserve found that the typical White family has eight times the wealth of the typical Black family. Shopping at Black-owned businesses is one action that everyone can take to help close the racial wealth gap, which has been created from ages of slavery and discrimination.


In addition to their dedicated service to Republic Airways, many of Republic’s Associates are entrepreneurs and community leaders. Let’s all do our part to support the Black community and our fellow colleagues by shopping Black-owned this month, and all year long.
