In celebration of Black History Month, the Black Law Students’ Association of Osgoode Hall Law School will host two community events aimed at honouring the achievements of those whose embodiment of the values of leadership, inclusivity and commitment to public service has strengthened the community while also encouraging and emboldening the future generation. To kick off the month-long festivities, BLSA will hold a Know Your Worth youth empowerment conference for high school students from the Jane/Finch community. The month will conclude with the memorialization of a Canadian trailblazer and champion of equity at the 5th annual Lincoln Alexander Award Ceremony.
