ASE Community Foundation,
for Black Canadians with Disabilities Is a newly formed national not-for-profit volunteer organization that aims to expand the conversations to include the intersectionality of experiences and voices of Black Canadians living with disabilities, and ultimately shift the culture to embrace the many talents and knowledge of all peoples within the Black Community. Through a strong and passionate board and volunteers, we are determined to create a hub of research and expertise to assist community organizations with their accessibility and anti-black racism challenges, as well as establish scholarships/awards and a wayfinding App ( information and services) for black Canadians with disabilities. ASE ( sounds like Ah- Shay!) is a Yoruba word (Nigerian) that means power and authority (it’s the ability to bring one’s will into manifestation or so it will be. As we continue to work towards these goals, we have established two scholarships that focus on resilience and endurance, and we are welcoming sponsors and donors.

Defonte Miller Art and Music Award, ASE Community Foundation; ASE Community Foundation, for Black Canadians with Disabilities
This award was established to acknowledge the incredible strength, resilience, and endurance, to collectively overcome great adversities. As in the case of Defonte Miller,
as with many other black Canadians living with disabilities. The goal of the Award is to provide the tools, equipment, and materials needed to pursue their artistic and/or musical careers. For example, Defonte is interested in music and in need of a Mac computer to make beats at home.
Legend, ASE Community Foundation Award
This award is being established to acknowledge individuals who contribute to peoples’ lives every day, but are not “seen” or acknowledged. Many black people with disabilities
contribute to everyday life and well-being of others, however they are rarely acknowledged for the additional challenges they overcome daily to be there to help other people, while also managing anti-black racism and ableism.
