Our community has spoken!

WIBCA would like to take this opportunity to thank our guest panelists, poets, moderator, elected officials, law-enforcement and our community at large for the overwhelming participation at WIBCA’s 1st virtual Town Hall meeting.

Our objectives set forth were accomplished and we will continue to mobilize as we prepare for a follow up Town Hall with a date TBD.

In the interim, we will take the necessary time to review/address all the correspondences in the FB chat along with gathering any questions which (due to time constraints) may not have been addressed during the Town Hall.

We would also like to thank the generous feedback received from many of our allies and greatly appreciate all of the volunteer requests and donations received to date.

OUR OBJECTIVES
To create a safe and open platform for Black Citizens, in particular Black Youths, to speak to the effects that SYSTEMIC & OVERT RACISM has on them as individuals and their community as a whole. We will be encouraging participants to share their experiences, feeling and concerns to public representatives i.e. our local politicians and law-enforcement.

OUR PANEL
We have invited professionals from the Black community in the areas of Mental Health; Education; the Arts; Justice; Social Services; Journalism and community development to address the impact that racism, toward POC has on the communities they work with and serve. Particular attention will be paid to the most recent incidences of police brutality in the US and here in Canada,
We will also be inviting other Black Community organizations to weigh in on the topic and to propose recommendations and possible solutions.
We look forward to your involvement and support as we move towards justice and equality for all of us.
