Community consultations are underway to inform the work of the Steering Committee, led by Professor Akwasi Owusu-Bempah, that is developing the framework for the Black Justice Strategy. This is a generational opportunity to develop a consistent framework to guide policy and practices to help dismantle systemic anti-Black racism in Canada’s Justice System.

Black Opportunity Fund’s National Justice Working Group has consulted with and provided its recommendations to the Department of Justice and the Steering Committee over the past year.

Community consultations are being led by 12 Black-led community organizations across Canada. Black Opportunity Fund is proud to be a funder of the work of several of these grassroots community organizations.
