GIVE TODAY TO SUPPORT BLACK CANADIANS
Right now, people in the United States and around the world are marching in solidarity with Black communities. They have gathered to protest police brutality and anti-Black racism, and to stand up for the value of Black lives.
This is not just an American problem. Canada has a painful history that continues to this day of racism, discrimination, and unequal access for Indigenous People and People of Colour. Black Canadians face unjust and systemic racism. In our schools, Black elementary students are suspended at three times the rate of their non-Black peers.1 On our streets, a Black person in Toronto is nearly 20 times more likely to be shot and killed by police.2 In our communities, Black Canadians are 3.5 times more likely to face food insecurity.3
Standing with the Black community, the Black Solidarity Fund is an opportunity to stand up against intolerance, prejudice, and injustice, and support charities across Canada focused on the advancement of Black Canadians.
Your donation will help charities supporting and advancing the lives of Black Canadians through social services, arts and culture, mental health supports, and more. When you make a donation today, your gift will be pooled with donations from other generous Canadians to achieve wide-reaching effects and you will receive an instant tax receipt.
Thank you to P&G Canada and the following P&G Brands for their support
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I’ve felt crippled with exhaustion meditating on how I could contribute to the change I want to see in the world. I’ve realized that this starts in our own backyards; through dialogue, compassion, and support. This fund gives us the opportunity to support the Black community in all facets and I believe that’s exactly where we need to start not only for short term, but also for long term change. I stand with the Black Solidarity Fund in igniting the change that I want to see for the future.
