ETHOS

Established in June 2020, Chez Nous Guide (French for our home) is a volunteer-run inclusive and intersectional home for businesses, artists, and organizations owned and run by historically-marginalized people around the world and our allies. We are dedicated to amplifying voices that have been—and continue to be—silenced by society: people of color, women, the LGBTQIA+ community.

Crowdsourced by our community, we exist to give people around the world the resources they need to support diversity, shop inclusively, and travel ethically. In our house, we are all family. Let’s demand more from the world for ourselves, our ancestors, and our children.

Bienvenue à Chez Nous (welcome to our home).
