Commemorating the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.
"Black Shirt Day"
is both a day of education and remembrance, and an invitation to a
necessary conversation about racial injustice.
After a Phenomenal 2021 & 2022,
ARC is on to another successful campaign.

We are aiming to expand the reach and exceed the
130,000+ participants from 2022!

We are especially proud of the official endorsement of Black Shirt Day 2022 by Independent Jewish Voices Canada: "a grassroots organization grounded in Jewish tradition that opposes all forms of racism and advocates for justice and peace for all in Israel-Palestine." We at ARC strongly affirm our support for anti-racism in all its forms, including the fight for justice and human rights for all human beings in Israel-Palestine.
