MISSION

Founded in 1989, the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention (Black CAP) has worked to meet its mission in our Black communities. Our work is also guided by our motto, ‘Because All Black People’s Lives Are Important’, and it stands as a reminder of the importance of our commitment to our community. The Mission of Black CAP is to:

  • Reduce the spread of HIV infection within Toronto’s Black communities
  • Enhance the quality of life of people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS

Black CAP is an organization that works to reduce HIV/AIDS in Toronto’s Black, African and Caribbean communities and enhance the quality of life of Black people living with or aff­ected by HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS is spreading quickly in Toronto’s Black communities and we believe that our work is more important than ever. At this time, Black, African and Caribbean people account for more than one-fifth of all new HIV infections in Toronto, in the early nineties we made up only one-tenth of new HIV infections. Issues of HIV related stigma and discrimination, homophobia, anti-Black racism, immigration, poverty, and barriers to social inclusion also continue to make our work harder.

Joyful Giving 2014

We Cordially Invite You to Joyful Giving

Black CAP is holding its annual Joyful Giving Fundraiser on December 11, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. at urban Space (401 Richmond St. West) and we hope you can join us. This year we'll be celebrating 25years of making "All Black People's Lives Important" and raising funds to support our emergency financial assistance (EFA) program .

This will be our biggest Joyful Giving ever because we'll also be celebrating our 25th anniversary and marking a quarter century of Black CAP's existence. In 1989, a group of leaders came together to increase awareness through education on the transmission and prevention of HIV within the Black community in a culturally specific way. Since this time, we've worked incredibly hard to realize the vision of those who founded Black CAP. Throughout the evening we'll take time to look back and to share the impact of our work.

Fundraising for the EFA program is a priority for Black CAP. Our EFA program supports people living with HIV and AIDS at moments of financial hardship and provides funds to people as they struggle to meet basic needs such as shelter, food and warm winter clothing. This fund makes a real difference in the lives of our clients at especially crucial moments.  

 

To mark this event we'll be joined by two amazing co-hosts, Tracy Melchor, co-host of CTV's THE SOCIAL and reporter for ETALK and local comedian Quinn C. Martin. We will also be joined by entertainers Gary Beals, Justin Palmer and Caleb Ellis. Joyful Giving is also a cocktail reception; refreshments will be served. We'll also be holding a silent auction.
