Black Lives Matter – Toronto is the Toronto chapter of #BlackLivesMatter, an international organization and movement fighting anti-Black racism all over the world. Black Lives Matter – Toronto was founded in October of 2014 and has since worked to resist anti-black policies and incidents in the Greater Toronto Area.
Despite the Black Lives Matter movement focusing media attention on how violence affects black communities, the experiences of women and girls have not received the same sustained media attention and outcry as the experiences of men. Our voices are routinely excluded from political and public discourse. It's critical for us to make an intervention.
