Our statement on anti-Black racism

Systemic anti-black racism exists across the world and in our local community. For generations, Black Nova Scotians have experienced inequities due to systemic racism in Halifax and Nova Scotia and still do today. As an organization that is guided by values of compassion and respect, we can and must do better.

Our organization must listen to and learn from the first-voice perspectives of Black Nova Scotians, amplify Black voices, invest in Black communities, and address inequities and injustices across our city.

Black lives matter.
