Shante's story

Both of our parents were union workers, and our descendants were slaves on a coffee plantation. In addition, I have been working in the service industry since I was 15. Because of our background, we are passionate about equity and began Alchemy Collective. It is a black, queer, and trans owned, co-op, where four equal owners have creative freedom.
