iPSS recognizes Black History Month 2022

New Project (5)

Every February, people across Canada participate in Black History Month events and festivities that honour the legacy of Black Canadians and their communities. This year, the Government of Canada announced that the theme for Black History Month 2022 is February and Forever: Celebrating Black History today and every day”, which focuses on recognizing the daily contributions that Black Canadians make to Canada. In addition to celebration, BHM is an important time to recognize the Black community for their diverse culture, rich heritage, and impactful accomplishments.

We believe that in order to effectively combat anti-Blackness, we must learn, and take action to dismantle the anti-Black racism that pervades all aspects of Canadian society at interpersonal, institutional, and systemic levels. We, at iPSS, aim to support and enable this work by engaging in dialogue, and daily allyship.

No matter where you live, we invite all Canadians to learn more about these communities, and how they continue to help shape the story of Canada. Equally important, is marking the years 2015-2024 as the International Decade for People of African Descent (IDPAD)
