Dhis Bulshadena - Build our community
Only 3% of cultural recreation and community facilities are Black-led and Black-serving
There is a huge gap in the kinds of city services that are made accessible to racialized communities in the City of Toronto. Right now, Black communities face the most inequality in the allocation of publicly available resources. We think it’s time to change that.
Who we are
Toronto is home to one of the largest Somali communities in the world
A collection of young Somalis from across Ontario came together to work on the SCCR in hopes of creating a dedicated space and resources for a community that has been underserved and disenfranchised in Toronto.
