See you at the vigil

Because Black lives matter, let's gather at Grand Parade on June 5 at 5pm.

We're all wondering what to do right now. Wondering what to say. (Remember that really, for non-Black folk, right now should be about listening.) Wondering how to be better.

A good place to start? Educate yourself. Give money if you can. And show up, as often as possible, for those more marginalized. Here's three ways to do that:
1Make a plan to go to the Halifax #BlackLivesMatter vigil, happening June 5 at Grand Parade from 5-7pm. Remember to wear a face mask and keep social distance, and check out the Facebook event for more info.

2 Register to be part of EVERYSEEKER Festival's anti-oppression workshop. Held online on Wednesday, June 10 at 1pm, the workshop will help you learn how to be a better ally. Fill out your application form through EVERYSEEKER's website.

3 Watch the forum on anti-Black racism, Speak Truth To Power, on June 5 from 6-7:30pm. Held via Zoom and put on by Dalhousie University's Human Rights & Equity Services and the Black Faculty and Staff Caucus, you can tune in here.
