Black Lives Matter to our Cartier Community

This is the final project for our Social Media and ME course at Place Cartier Adult Education Centre. With everything that has been going on, especially in the past year in the United States and throughout the world surrounding issues of colour and race, in this final project, we are moving beyond exploring who we are as digital citizens. By creating this website, we stand together, united as a class, to make a statement and to affirm our views about the #Black Lives Matter movement and protest the systemic racism, racial profiling and worldwide discrimination towards people of colour.
