A future where African, Caribbean and Black people can engage fully in the civic, social, and economic opportunities available inWaterloo Region without systemic barriers related to anti-Black racism as it pertains to our health and overall wellbeing.


The ACB Network of Waterloo Region will connect Black communities in Waterloo Region, and build the infrastructure to support Black mobilizing to address structural inequity.

Through active-engagement, advocacy, and community collaboration we will:

  • Focus on key issues that highlight the structural impact of anti-Black racism
  • Provide opportunities for members of our African, Caribbean & Black communities to work collaboratively to reduce and remove structural barriers to equity.
  • Act as a resource for individuals, groups, and the larger community to become aware of the breadth of Black-led initiatives taking place within the region.
  • Act as a catalyst for Black leadership development and social justice organizing
