Black History Month

 

February has officially been Black History Month for 25 years now. Every year, we use this month to highlight how Black communities have made rich contributions to the growth and development of Greater Montreal.  However, much remains to be done to achieve real equity.

The pandemic and events of the past year have revealed how much injustice and inequality persist for these communities, whose strength is matched only by their determination to make real changes in society.

As we are committed to fighting poverty and social exclusion, Centraide is deeply concerned about the challenges and barriers faced by members of visible minorities. Together with our network of agencies, we work every day to foster diversity and inclusion. We therefore want to add our voice to those of thousands of others taking action here and around the world in order to do even more to make change happen.

In this newsletter, you will read about two women from community agencies that we support, each of whom is shaping these societal changes in her own way.
