Black Lives Matter in Vancouver and around the world. They always have.

The World - The Vancouver Basketball Foundation™ is listening, learning and reflecting.  The Black Community is in our hearts and we stand with YOU. We are committed to being better. We will make internal changes. We will invest in programs, people and partnerships that amplify black voices.

We are on this journey, individually, collectively, and we will be better. Big changes will happen.

“Becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end. It’s all a process, steps along a path. Becoming requires equal parts patience and rigour. Becoming is never giving up on the idea that there’s more growing to be done.“ -Michelle Obama
