After a successful rally on June 2nd, 2020. The organizers of the march want to use that momentum to keep the BLM movement alive and active in the city of Nogojiwanong/Peterborough.
We will be using these funds to first and foremost pay back BIPOC who spent personal money on the day of the rally to ensure we had the supplies we needed.
The remaining funds will be used to create future events, and potentially support BIPOC in the community. We are hoping to create an emergency fund for BIPOC artists and community members in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough.
Because this is a grassroots movement and we only just started we are slowly working around our regular schedules to bring our vision alive. Our goal is to replicate the goals of other BLM sects (see BLM Toronto) but with more specific actions we want to take place in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough.
We also want to remain as transparent as possible and be a group of the people for the people. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us and join our official facebook group to keep yourself updated as we being this incredible journey.
