How can I get involved

We are thrilled that you are interested in getting involved with the Wear a Black Ribbon during Black History Month Campaign to raise awareness and take action against racial discrimination.

We could use a helping hand!

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.  Nelson Mandela!

There are so many ways you can get involved with the campaign and initiative, no matter how much time you have to give.  We are confident that we will help you find your place in the battle against Racial Discrimination and intolerance. With your help and support, we can turn the rising tide of racial discrimination and intolerance we face today into the tipping point we need, to motivate and energize good people like yourself to take back the future we deserve.
