BLAC Statement on the Education System and the Peel District School Board Review

Since we opened our doors to the public in March of 2019, we have received numerous calls and cases from clients that are related to anti-Black racism in education. We receive calls from community agencies, Black families, high school, university and college students, as well as from Black teachers. We hear every day that educational institutions continue to be spaces for the perpetuation of horrendous anti-Black racism.

BLAC provides free legal services to Black Ontarians and continues to represent and support Black parents, caregivers and families challenge anti-Black racism in the school system on an individual and systemic level.
