Every child has the right to a life free from discrimination of any form. While this right is enshrined in The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, we know that this is far from being a reality for black children and their families.
The team at Children First Canada stands in solidarity with you. We see you. We acknowledge your lived experience. We are committed to confronting systemic racism that prevents black children from achieving their full potential.
