February is Black History Month

For BIPOC community members 2020 was quite a year. This past summer, thousands of people across the globe took to the streets to demand equality for all.

Leadership at Canadian Helen Keller Centre took some time to understand what that meant, because like so many others, we are learning, too. It’s not easy to put oneself in another person’s shoes and recognize the challenges they face because of the colour of their skin.

It’s not easy, but it should be.

As February approaches, CHKC is committed to honouring Black History Month. We use the word honour for a specific reason.

Honour means that we recognize and take pride in black representation and the fight BIPOC communities face.

Throughout February, we will be posting stories about black intervenors and consumers, highlighting their challenges and celebrating their accomplishments.

Please share, like, retweet, favourite and comment.

Show your support and, together, let us honour Black History Month.
