Black History Month 2021 Launch

Celebrate, Educate and Advocate

We will be hosting a virtual, two day launch event for Black History Month 2021 on January 30th and January 31st, 2021. Our theme for this auspicious event is “Celebrate, Educate and Advocate.”

Through this launch event, we will be showcasing other black community groups and resources that can benefit the African, Black and Caribbean communities within Waterloo Region. Some of the categories of resources include: mental and physical health, financial literacy, legal support, entrepreneurship, and education. Over the two days, there will be workshops, panel discussions, performances, and speeches.

Keynote speaker Dr. Laura Mae Lindo, MPP for Kitchener Centre. Other organizations and cultural associations including Bring On The Sunshine, Waterloo Region District School Board, Congress of Black Women Waterloo Region, the African Caribbean Black Network, Starlite steelband and others will also be part of the event.

COVID-19 has forced us all to reimagine new ways to do things. We are taking all precautions to follow Health Canada guidelines and adhere to provincial recommendations.
