All Welcome Here is a BIPOC-led non-profit organization focusing on anti-racism in a consciously intersectional way in Prince Edward County, Ontario. (BIPOC: Black, Indigenous and People of Colour)
We strive to link people of colour in our rural community in order to provide social connections, business assistance, support and help in building that critical rural network.
We work in our wider community in anti-racist advocacy with a focus on education, access & representation, anti-racist actions and events, policing and migrant workers’ issues.

We are a small part of the local population but our numbers are growing. We are Indigenous, Black, South Asian, Latin American, etc. Our national origins are quite diverse and we are Mohawk, Jamaican, Japanese, Somali, Filipino, Mexican, Canadian, Trinidadian, Sri Lankan, Peruvian, Bajan, Korean, Egyptian, and more!
If you’re BIPOC in PEC you can join our private facebook group, join the book club, get support for your business (and find new customers), find anti-racism support, volunteer and join us for a BIPOC meetup (when covid restrictions allow).
