About Black Lives Matter – Toronto
Black Lives Matter – Toronto is the Toronto chapter of the #BlackLivesMatter network, an international organization and movement fighting anti-Black racism and state-sanctioned violence.
About BLM – TO Freedom School
BLM – TO Freedom School is a three week program for children aged four to ten. The project responds to a lack of humanizing, self-affirming, queer positive educational opportunities for Black children in the GTA. The program is designed to teach children about Black Canadian and diasporic history, to engage children in political resistance to anti-Black racism and state violence through a trans-feminist lens, and to offer children an entry point into the #BlackLivesMatter movement. The project will conclude its first run on Friday, July 29, 2016.
