Anti-Black Racism Resources


The recent death of George Floyd reignites the centuries-old discussion about Anti-Black Racism. As an organization, we intimately understand the impact of systemic Anti-Black Racism and take seriously our responsibility to play our part in its eradication.

Our Call To Action


We at INNOV-8 believe that most people in the world are good. Good people generally abhor oppression of one person or group by another. But good people with the power to bring about change don’t always speak-up. When only the people directly impacted by oppression speak, progress is unlikely — more often than not, that group is oppressed because they have little power and they have little power because they’ve been oppressed.

“Until the philosophy that holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned”, our world will remain in turmoil. “Good” people of the world - together - black, white, Asian, Indian, First Nations, man, woman, male, female, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Rastafarian, LGBTQ, Other. The power to discredit and abandon racism is in your voice, speak!
