ASE Community Foundation for Black Canadians with Disability: Black Accessibility Knowledge (BLAcK) Hub is now live!
The BLAcK Hub is a confidential, fully accessible, and free resource for Black people with disabilities of all ages, their families, caregivers and support networks. Black people with disabilities informed and designed the Hub to bridge the structural gaps and address systemic barriers in accessing Black-focused disability resources, services, and knowledge at the intersection of Blackness, disability and gender.
The BLAck Hub has three main focuses:
Service Directory: The BLAcK Hub’s service directory offers free access to a diverse range of specialists, practitioners, providers, businesses, and community organizations who specialize in supporting the needs of Black people with disabilities.
Disability Resources: Explore the BLAcK Hub’s disability-related resources, toolkits, and websites. Build your understanding of all types of disabilities, access critical government financial resources, benefits, and grants, and manage your own disability accommodations and journey.
Knowledge Catalogue: The BLAcK Hub’s knowledge catalogue hosts research findings, policy papers, reports, conference proceedings, and educational materials that explore the intersection of Blackness, disability, and gender.
