On February 28, 2019, BLSA hosted its annual Know Your Worth Conference, which brought together 150+ students from 10 schools! Thanks to everyone for making this event a successful celebration of black beauty, power and excellence.
Thank you to all the schools, teachers, facilitators, support staff, student leaders and MCs, performers, speakers, BLSA executive members and sponsors for making the Know Your Worth Conference 2019 (KYW) a resounding success. Special thanks to the Honourable Justice Espinet, Interim Dean Mary Condon, TDSB Vice Chair and Trustee Chris Moise, and Superintendent of Education Audley Salmon for speaking to and encouraging the students. Most importantly, thank you to all the students for participating and bringing your energy and enthusiasm. KYW would not be possible without you. Each of you is strong, brilliant and bound for success. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise!
