BLACK LIVES MATTER

COMMUNITY CARE

I’m a Lebanese-Belgian living on stolen Indigenous Land. A lot of people in Canada still live without knowing or caring about the past & present systemic violence and racism against Black & Indigenous communities. Education, mindsets and the entire system need to change, myself included.

I strongly believe that there are no such things as personal gain. We only thrive if the entire community is lifted up.

 

Below are 3 organizations centering BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) lives my shop profits will be going to!

Please find extra resources and documentations at the bottom of the page.
