Ways You Can Support The Black Community in Toronto and Worldwide

Black Com Header

Black History Month is a time to learn more about the heritage, traditions and culture of the Black Community. By listening to and reading about the many stories and important contributions we can explore and celebrate inclusion and diversity all month long.

Whether it's by attending protests, donating time or money, or dedicating time and space to researching and learning.. there is certainly no shortage of ways to show your solidarity.

Amplifying Black voices is not only important, it is imperative. It is time to show up, speak up, and act.
