The Color of Our People

The “Color of Our People” Fundraising Conference is an event that will bring the Dominican Culture to life. It will culturally immerse the Montreal community by showing them the different aspects that make Dominican Republic unique. We are honored to have the Consul General and Ambassador of the Dominican Republic in Canada as speakers.They will share with you their perspectives on the social gaps that exist in our country. Differences between the North American and Dominican educational systems will also be compared. We look forward to seeing you all there as it will be a fun and eye-opening night. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at 1450 Guy St. – MB4.106. You can also email us at and we can set aside some tickets. Since we limited capacity for this event, tickets will not be sold at the door.
