Ribbon Rouge Foundation (RRF)

The Edmonton Intercultural Centre (EIC) is a community full of love, caring, and support. In this and future articles, we will inform readers of the non-profit organizations operating in the EIC facility in order to bring light to their many good deeds.

Ribbon Rouge Foundation (RRF) was selected in February of 2023 by the Edmonton Intercultural Centre’s Board of Directors to occupy a rare office space vacancy in the EIC facility. The EIC welcomes RRF as a Member Tenant and is looking forward to working with this fine and progressive organization.

Ribbon Rouge Foundation (RRF) is a non-profit organization with a primary mission to achieve health equity for African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) people across Alberta. They strive to achieve equity and improved opportunities for Black people experiencing poorer outcomes because of racialized health disparities. Their grassroots organization facilitates storytelling, advocacy, networking, and community-engaged arts to create transformative system change.

RRF supports highly vulnerable ACB clients, focusing on people who identify as 2SLGBTQ+, have substance use issues, and are at risk of living with sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs), mental health issues, and experiencing incarceration. They take an asset and strengths-based approach that seeks to enhance the gifts and wisdom of community members, volunteers, and stakeholders.
