We, as Boka Restaurant Group, realize we need to do more and we need to do better. We are taking this time to listen and to learn in what ways we can hold ourselves more accountable and become better allies. Boka Restaurant Group is committed to supporting Black Lives. We’ve donated to Color Of Change, NAACP, and Chicago Children's Choir. We ask our friends and supporters to consider donating to these organizations and supporting local black-owned businesses. ⁣⁣

As a company who prides itself on hospitality and taking care of people, we are starting by leaning in to what we know best⁠—the power of food. In an ongoing effort with World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods, we’re working to provide meals to communities in Chicago’s south and west sides.⁣⁣ 

Additionally, we are in the process of forming an internal committee to actively correct unconscious bias, improve issues with wage disparity and hiring practices, create time and space for mentorship, amplify Black voices, and promote career growth for POC within our company.⁣

We know this is a small step and we have a lot of work to do. We encourage you to leave feedback and hold us accountable as we roll out long term plans to weave racial equity into the fabric of Boka Restaurant Group. Please email us directly at⁣⁣ 

Black Lives Matter and make Chicago the beloved city it is; we stand with you and support you.
