  • We will create events and programming to highlight the diverse cultural experience of Black people living in Canada.

Current Projects

UPlift Black Youth Care Packages

As our youth sit at home isolating and navigating online school, they are overwhelmed with both the stress and anxiety of the global COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the nation and the recent events spotlighting the prevalence of Anti-Black Racism here in Canada. The time for change is now and our Black youth need to hear from their neighbours and our community allies that Black Lives Matter. Registration for care packages has closed – July 31st, 2020. Thank you for your interest and support.
