The mission of the Black Legal Action Centre (BLAC) is to educate, advocate, and litigate to combat individual and systemic anti-Black racism in Ontario.

  • We educate both inside and outside our community to empower through knowledge and change attitudes and behaviours that contribute to anti-Black racism;
  • We advocate for justice both inside and outside the systems and institutions that play integral roles in our lives as Black people, in order to achieve Black liberation; and
  • We litigate to break down barriers that preclude our full participation in society.

In doing so, we will focus on working with our community and others with a goal of reciprocal and respectful listening and learning. Through rigorous community engagement and by challenging historically oppressive institutions, BLAC will endeavour to explore, understand, and re-imagine what it means to be Black in Ontario.
