The new initiative from the DJ collective and promoter group aims to connect black residents of Vancouver with therapy and mental health resources. The goal is to provide ten to 15 hours of therapy for ten disabled and LGBTQIA+ black residents free of charge, hiring advocates to act as a liaison between recipients and mental health providers. (NuZi acknowledges that most therapists in the Vancouver area are non-black.)

NuZi is a black and queer electronic music collective founded by Betty Mulat (AKA Venetta) and Samira Warsame (AKA Zam Zam).
