Black History Month

Black History Month is celebrated every February to honor and recognize the achievements of Black leaders.

At DASH, we pay tribute to the legacy and ongoing contributions of Black leaders in our community past and present.

“Differences of race, nationality or religion should not be used to deny any human being citizenship rights or privileges.” – Rosa Parks

Our mission is to break barriers that prevent marginalized survivors from accessing housing and supports. We believe safe housing is basic human right for all.

Follow along as we honor Black trailblazers who led anti-violence activism and broke barriers for the Black community.
