If you cannot support the fund, consider taking action to demand reparations for Africville: https://www.collectiveaction.ca/africville
Africville was home to hundreds of individuals and families, and together they built a thriving, resilient and close‐knit community until it was expropriated by the Province of Nova Scotia and Halifax City Council.
From the early 1800s to 1970, Africville was home to many black families, schools and churches. However, the community was denied access to clean drinking water, paved roads and sewage.
Today the people of Africville are demanding reparations for the years of generational trauma, misfortune and lost opportunities for Africville residents and descendants.
A mutual aid fund for former residents and descendants of Africville.
We will be providing supports to former Africville residents and descendants through an online application process. Applicants will be granted support based on needs, as well as evidence of Africville ancestry. We will also be raising funds to set aside for court cases, as well as for land ownership and development purposes.
Applications for the Africville Liberation Fund will be open in February 2021.
This fund is based on a shared community trust system. We want to reduce the barriers and create opportunities for supports while being accountable and transparent to the community and to our donors.
This community fund was initiated and facilitated by a group of former Africville residents, descendants, organizers, and activists located in Halifax, NS. The funds raised on this website will be withdrawn directly by Eddie Carvery into a legal bank account with oversight from a Financial Institution and a Law firm. The funds will be distributed via cheques and e-transfer, after the working group reviews applications.
