If you are an organization, group or community member that is invested in transformative and anti-oppressive teaching strategies, student development, sociological research or coalition building, I'd love to work with you!
Anti-Racist Pedagogy Project
The Anti-Racist Pedagogy Project is a public database of anti-racist and social justice-centred educational materials by faculty, staff, students, and community activists. This project showcases how educators and activists are responding to Covid19 and the ongoing crisis of systemic racism. Each video historicizes and offers proactive techniques for combatting systemic oppression, racism, and other injustices within and beyond the classroom. Along with a guided resource link list to direct the audience to learn and participate further offline. A pilot project is underway.
The Decolonial Perspectives and Practices Hubs
I founded The Decolonial Perspective and Practises Hub in 2019 to counter the feeling of invisibility and marginalization in the academy. We are a coalition of social justice pedagogists. We are an established mobile space and community advancing decolonial pedagogy within higher education, organizations and diverse communities. Our offerings include anti-racist, decolonial and pedagogical consultancy, workshop design, event facilitation and multi-media activism. We also sponsor community/institutional initiatives and guest speakers that celebrate the experiences and knowledge of racialized people.
The National Black Network
To maintain Black empowerment and celebration at large – I co-developed an online platform for Black graduate students and students of Black studies to collaborate, share resources, receive mentorship and build solidarity across the country. The National Black Graduate Network offers the connectivity my colleagues, and I have longed for in our academic careers.
The WIBCA Project
The Decolonial Hub has partnered with the West Island Black Community Association to create a video capsule on Black Canadian resilience from the stories of the founding elders of WIBCA. The video capsule showcases how we can learn about black resilience, hope and community building from the founding elders and how the black youth are continuing their legacy.

Hoodstock Youth PowerLunches
We are inviting Francophone Black and Brown entrepreneurs and artists to mentor youth from Montreal North in a new program we are creating with Hoodstock on Art and Leadership for racialized youth, called Power Lunches. In this session, we desire to revitalize the process of providing youth with professional and career development by creating a session that shows the many applications of art to the real world grounded in art, self-love and empowerment propelling youth to realize their innovative and creative capacities to be leaders in their future fields, flourish in their academics and strive for social change.
