As we pass the one-year mark of the coronavirus reaching Bergen County and reminisce about the early days of the global pandemic, our thoughts also shift to 2020’s other newsmaker: the protests against racial inequality and the Black Lives Matter movement. While BERGEN focused on Black History Month in February, we continue to support the human rights campaign as well as Black-owned businesses.
