Be A Kid

Because Every Child Deserves to

  • play freely,
  • laugh loudly,
  • and explore the wonder of the world in a joyfully inquisitive way.
Every child deserves the opportunity to try something new, connect with community, and do so without the judgmental and scrutinizing gaze of the people around them. Unfortunately, for Black, Indigenous and Children of Colour, they often don't get these opportunities.
 
BIPOC Kids often face barriers when it comes to… being a kid. Barriers to participating in activities like finances, travel, time, lack of knowledge, stigma, fear for safety, and even just feeling like they’re going to stick out or be the only racialized kid there.
