WHERE WE ARE TODAY

Today we offer support and advocacy to BIPOC communities through our work. We are a group of volunteers. 

We have two community navigators, Kendi Tarichia and Natasha Chambers, who help community members navigate various systems including health care, mental health care and addictions, justice, immigration, education, and housing. 

Anti-racism workshops are offered to local organizations and businesses by Dante Bazard and Sobia Ali-Faisal, and anti-Islamophobia workshops are offered by Sobia Ali-Faisal, Mehdi Belhadj, and Fatiha Enniri (in French).

We host regular discussion groups for BIPOC community members in which we talk about anything and everything. These conversations are initiated and facilitated by Amirah Oyesegun and Bianca Pilar Garcia Urena and are serious, educational, enlightening, and extremely fun (we laugh a lot). They are BIPOC only spaces to maintain our comfort and safety.
