The North Grove's Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We are committed to ensuring The North Grove is an inclusive space, where everyone is welcome.
We know our organization and our work is strengthened by recognizing and valuing all the identities, perspectives and experiences that are part of The North Grove and the broader community.
We know that there is much for us to learn as individuals, as a community, and as an organization. We are committed to listening, learning, and taking action against all forms of discrimination and the inequitable systems that keep people in poverty.
The North Grove is located in Ponamogoatitjg, the original Mi’kmaw name for what is also known as Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Mi’kma’ki is the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq people.
People of African descent have also shared these lands for more than 400 years. We acknowledge the histories, contributions, and legacies of these communities and are grateful to live, work and grow food in Mi’kma’ki.
