“Founded in 1962, the Windsor and District Black Coalition aims to
participate in building a community in which all have equal opportunity
for full social, political and economic participation, without
discrimination on the basis of race, colour, gender, ethnicity, age,
physical disability or sexual orientation. In particular its purpose is
to advance, defend and articulate the interests of those of African
descent in the Windsor and Essex County area. Membership is open to all
who share this commitment.

During its over forty years of existence, the Windsor and District Black
Coalition has led the fight against racial discrimination in Windsor and
has been its most relentless advocate of antidiscrimination measures in
employment, housing, public accommodations and government institutions.
It has done so through documenting and publicizing incidents and
patterns of racial discrimination, facilitating complaints to the
Ontario Human Rights Commission, establishing or participating in
working groups such as the Windsor Human Rights Institute, the Human
Rights Commission’s Committee on Employment, The Windsor Ad Hoc
Community Leaders’ Forum, and The National Black Coalition of Canada.
