A week in review (Oct 10-16, 2011)

Some of this weeks highlights were: 

This week started with a presentation for the almost 300 students in Prof. Killmurray’s class at the University of Ottawa. The team engaged the class in the socialogical history of the LGBTQ community and the challenges we still face. 

Our students attended an Ottawa-Carleton District School Board conference to talk about equity, and engaged with teachers on the work we are doing in their schools.

Our Education team spoke at to over 100 youth at 3 different schools, including a special presentation at Hillcrest HS where we engaged with the diversity club to talk about how they could do work to stop homophobia & transphobia at school. 

Over the weekend, we planned for the Michaelle Jean event at the elementary school of the same name 🙂
