Help Making Change
Making Change’s GOAL is to spark broad community interest and foster conversations around inclusion and diversity. We have a specific focus on raising awareness and educating and exposing people to the Black community, Black culture, issues around anti-Black racism, and how to move towards inclusion through allyship, participation and discussion. We also provide support – financial and administrative - to local organizations aligned with supporting the Black community, and those doing diversity and inclusion work.
Through our initiatives centred around Black History Month, Making Change embraces the community values that connect us as people, bring us closer together, and encourage us to support each other.
It’s really about community togetherness.
About Making Change
Making Change is an ad-hoc not-for-profit organization of community volunteers, led by a community of Black women.
Launched in 2019 by changemakers Shelly Skinner and Michèle Newton who were joined by Stephanie Gourlie in 2020, it has grown to include a dedicated team of Simcoe County volunteers.
Together, they plan and coordinate Making Change Black History Month activities, inclusion projects and events for the community.
