About

 AURORA BLACK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION, we are driven by a single goal; to make our town a more inclusive place for all Canadians, African Caribbean, African Canadians, and the entire multicultural community of Aurora, which supports diversity, equity and inclusion.  

"One VISION, diverse VOICES."

The Aurora Black Community Association (ABC) is led by a dedicated board committed to the work needed for change. The Association creates events and programs to unite the community, with the motto, “One Vision Diverse Voices.” The events and programs offer opportunities for learning through the participation of inclusive experiences.

ABC focuses on providing a safe place for Aurorans and surrounding communities to feel welcome and express their authentic voices. Its mission is to create an empowered environment that bridges different cultures in Aurora together through music, sports & recreation, education, resources, and food. Food sharing has brought people from different cultures together since the beginning. It's how we make friends, nurture relationships, celebrate milestones, mend conflicts and feel gratitude for life. Food is a fantastic vehicle for learning about people with different backgrounds. We will continue to use simple things to make a significant impact. 

ABC works tirelessly and has created a foundation and legacy for Aurora Black History through events, knowledge sessions, awareness initiatives, togetherness, cross-cultural dialogues, leadership and much more to ensure that Aurora is a Town that truly embraces inclusivity, makes space for others, and celebrates our diverse and rich cultures.

This is a safe place for Actions and intentional conversations about implicit bias and racism aimed at the Black community and other minority groups that have been taking place long before the tragedies of our most recent victims. Our community must be resourceful and educated on effectively addressing all forms of racism toward any group, especially minorities.
