Where/When: ⁣
West Queen West on June 13th.⁣ From Dovercourt to Dufferin St, 3p– 7p.

Start off on the 6IX Cycle patio, our donation hub, located at 1163 Queen W. We’re asking for a minimum donation of $20 (CASH ONLY) to participate. You’ll receive your neighbourhood bracelet to access the full offerings, including entry into the raffle.⁣

Why:⁣
The work must continue.⁣

Our intention is to drive awareness and financial support to BLAC, the only Black-led specialty legal clinic working to combat individual and systemic anti-Black racism in Canada.⁣

With a goal of $10,000+ we want to help further their work to provide free legal services to low and no income Black people in Ontario. BLAC serves all Black Ontarians by providing summary legal advice and referrals, and serves all Black Canadians by engaging in law reform and advocacy.⁣

How:⁣
Safety first. ⁣
