What is NuLu?

About us

NuLu is best known for its art galleries, specialty stores, antique shops and a growing number of local, upscale restaurants.

 

The term “NuLu” is a portmanteau meaning “New Louisville”. As home to the greenest commercial building in Kentucky, many historic restoration projects, as well as several restaurants offering organic and locally sourced ingredients, NuLu has emerged with a culture of sustainability.

 

NuLu has emerged with a culture of sustainability and a “New” way of thinking about working and living in a historic urban neighborhood.

 

Future plans include a new pedestrian and bike friendly streetscape project with planted gardens and surface water mitigation that will not only improve the appearance of the neighborhood but add to our efforts to improve sustainability in this community.

Hopefully, your plans include a visit to Nulu.

BLM issues demands for cut of Louisville business profits, threatens boycotts, sit-ins

Black Lives Matter protesters in Louisville have issued demands to businesses in the city's East Market District in order to correct the "lack of representation" of non-whites and "liberate" people of color.

 

In a letter addressed to "Business Owners and Stakeholders in NuLu business district" with a subject line of "Reparations and Representation," the Louisville BLM affiliate is demanding donations to organizations run by non-whites, as well as racial quotas for staff and ownership of business suppliers.

The list of demands includes:

  • 23% of staff are "black or indigenous persons of color" (BIPOC) in Front of House positions
  • 23% of inventory is from BIPOC retailers
  • Dress code policy does not discriminate against BIPOC patrons and employees
  • Mandated "diversity and inclusion training" for all employees
  • Displays of left-wing messaging to support "reparations"

The group is also publishing "grades" of the business, with three varieties of posters with the message "YOU CAN'T STOP THE REVOLUTION" and the grades A, C, and F as outlined by the "NuLu Social Justice Health and Wellness Code."

If businesses fail to abide by BLM's demands, the following "Repercussions of non-compliance" will be enforced:

  • Reduction in Racial Index Score/bias report to the Better Business Bureau.
  • Notification, via all social media platforms, of non-compliance.
  • Public boycott, coordinated through social media and mail announcements, of the NuLu establishment and any other business ventures under the same ownership.
  • Visible, media-covered demonstration/sit-in outside the establishment.
  • Placement of booths/tables outside the establishment where competing black proprietors will offer items comparable to those offered by the establishment.

==================================================

This is out and out Blackmail.

 

18 U.S. Code § 873. Blackmail. Whoever, under a threat of informing, or as a consideration for not informing, against any violation of any law of the United States, demands or receives any money or other valuable thing, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.
