Across various areas, Black 2SLGBTQI+ community members continue to face systemic barriers which include access to housing, employment, education, health services, and many more. Earlier this year, The Enchanté Network conducted a survey as part of our Back to Our Roots Project. Results showed that
over 70% of Black 2SLGBTQI+ respondents have experienced hate crimes
with over 80% of respondents stating that they have experienced anti-black racism in 2SLGBTQI+ spaces.
For this year’s Giving Tuesday Campaign the Enchanté Network asks for your support as we aim to address the specific realities of Black 2SLGBTQI+ Canadians.
By donating to our Back to Our Roots Project, you will help us continue to amplify community-based leadership, and Support Black 2SLGBTQI+ movement building on a national stage.
We have a fundraising goal of $10,000 and every single contribution is monumental!

“As we continue to grapple with the devastating impact of hate crimes in Canada, it is crucial that we recognize the importance of intersectionality in the fight against all forms of oppression”

“Intersecting systems of oppression function to compound barriers to accessing the supports needed to respond to the specific health, economic and social outcomes of Black 2SLGBTQI+ at individual and community levels.”
