Speak, Change & Uplift
Now more then ever we need to create spaces for Women of Color to share their experiences.
This page is about creating a web-based platform that supports Black women in sharing their authentic voices in order to create change. By understanding the realities and unique perspectives of Black women, especially right here in Nova Scotia, we can continue to advocate for change that creates opportunities for Black women and futures generations to thrive.
This project centres around a vision that values the many contributions Black Women have made toward racial and social justice.
