BlackLivesMatter-TO's summer school is starting this summer in Toronto

This July, BlackLivesMatter-TO is creating a Freedom school.  It is a 3 week long summer program for children aged 4-10.  

There is a glaring lack of educational materials for children aged 4-10 that teach about Black Canadian and diasporic history.  This means that the Freedom School will have to create engaging, educational materials for the Freedom School participants.  The Committee will be working with Black artists and allies to develop these materials. Find out more about how you can help sponsor some of these materials, and become eligible for great thank you gifts, here
