DBDLI Message of Humanity

The tragic acts locally and internationally harm the spirit of humanity. The spirit of Maat insists that we join our voices with our local African Nova Scotian communities, our sisters and brothers in the Diaspora and speak as an ally voice with the LGBT community to say that humanity must reign. We share our resilience, compassion, fortitude and decry all acts that deny us as People and our right to be.

Proverb / Word of the Month

The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.

International Decade for People of African Descent

As the DBDLI seeks opportunities to advance its mandate, we will promote the Decade with a goal to advance people of African Descent to realize their full potential.

The International Decade for People of African Descent, proclaimed by General Assembly resolution 68/237 and to be observed from 2015 to 2024, provides a solid framework for the United Nations, Member States, civil society and all other relevant actors to join together with people of African descent and take effective measures for the implementation of the programme of activities in the spirit of recognition, justice and development.

For more details and background, please visit the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent website.
