Daily Dose of Blackness is a group of young Black people from Guildford Park Secondary School in Surrey. We came together over a common set of concerns and experiences, to share solidarity and ideas, and to hang out together. We are a new cohort within Solid State Community Industries — a non-profit that builds workers’ co-operatives with youth in Surrey.
From a media company to popcorn, Solid State Industries is working with youth in Surrey to create workers’ co-operatives. More than a dozen Surrey students are learning about what it takes to start and operate a new business with a program offered in partnership with the Surrey School District.
We work, study, and live in a region south of the Fraser River which overlaps with the unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt and Kwikwetlem peoples.
