Support Black Lives Matter - Donations, Resources and More

On Saturday, June 6, 2020, thousands of people gathered in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement in Victoria Park and the weekend’s rally has taught us that we need to continue to take action. 

Budweiser Gardens and Spectra have a responsibility to the diverse communities in which we live and work. To champion social justice, equality and meaningful change.

We stand with our colleagues, partners and neighbours as we make our voices heard and challenge injustice.

We've compiled some resources to help amplify forces for change in our community and within Canada, from donating to educational tools and more.

With the closure of music venues, theatres, bars and pubs, live music events came to a rapid halt in an effort to 'flatten the curve'. The result has left many musicians and industry workers without an income. We all cherish the creators and the value they bring to our communities both socially and economically.
