Join us for our Black History Month kick-off event and celebrate the International Decade for People of African Descent.Buy Tickets
Presented by United Way Greater Toronto and the Federation of Black Canadians, this breakfast event will explore the theme: ‘Beyond the Decade: Empowering the Next Generation.’
Aligned with the International Decade for People of African Descent (2015–2024), this year’s celebration holds particular significance. At UWGT and FBCFCN, we honor the contributions of Black communities not just in February but throughout the year. Save the date to recognize the positive impact of individuals of African descent, celebrate past achievements, and engage in discussions about the future.
We will discuss the achievements and opportunities for the next generation to build equitable communities. We will present community awards, host a panel discussion, and feature a special guest as a keynote speaker (TBC).
Don’t miss the chance to reconnect with old friends and network with our Peel, Toronto, and York Region partners.
Limited tickets available. Secure your spot by January 23!
We hope to see you there.
