Communities and other businesses around us support this positive initiative and it gives us all an opportunity to raise awareness.
I would like us to join in by wearing black for Black Shirt Day this Friday, Jan 15th. This Friday is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday who is a famous civil rights activist. Black people have been discriminated against for far too long so he stood up and spoke out about this issue. By wearing a black shirt this Friday we acknowledge the ongoing battle against discrimination and anti-black racism in Canada and around the world. We hope you will join us this Friday by wearing black. Every small action matters.
