As the conversation of social justice and anti-black racism grows louder, the SA of GBC wants to share a few helpful resources which can provide education on the movement as well as support for George Brown’s black community.
This website offers information on the movement as well as critical links to black organizations, charities and services. It is a source for informed opinion and dialogue on racism in Canada, as well as a place to learn about the events and services offered in your community.
Black Women in Motion
Black Women in Motion is a Toronto-based organization aimed at empowering and supporting black women. Their programming includes weekly Instagram conversations promoting self care and mental health, workshops on media literacy, consent and relationships, and events celebrating Pride month throughout June.
Mental Health Resources Supporting Black People
Over the weekend, Jesse Sparks shared this terrific list of resources for counselling, workshops and mental health support for black communities. Counselling and therapy can be difficult to find at the best of times, and social distancing policies have only made it worse. Sparks’s list offers a couple virtual options for those feeling overwhelmed.
If you’re seeking support or have any questions, please reach out to our Community Care Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Community Care Centre also encourages everyone to attend their panel discussion on how racism affects migrant student communities. This panel will take place on June 4, 2020 at 2:00ET.
