Group-73.png

The 613-819 Black Hub regularly brings people of African descent in Ottawa-Gatineau together to coordinate volunteer-led efforts to address anti-Black racism through systemic change primarily in education, justice, employment, business and politics. 

Our goal is Ottawa-Gatineau Black communities that are strong financially, institutionally, politically and socially and working to grow stronger every day.
The Hub has coordinated activities on race-based education data; federal and municipal funding, policy and elections; and hate crimes. The Hub helps unite the Black community by holding its meeting as much as possible in Black controlled spaces. The Hub was founded in December 2017.
