The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity presents Allyship in Action: 2017. Our goal is to bring together youth to engage them in intersectional and activist workshops, with the end goal of fostering their capacity to practice solidarity with diverse communities.
This year we are proud to host 2 FREE Forums
We understand that the word ally is not a noun but instead a verb. To ally yourself with someone is to be listening and learning how to care for and support different people. Participants will learn all about the diverse history of different kinds of Canadians and how to stand up not just for them, but with them.
Because of interest, we are proud to host two forums on either side of our nation. The Vancouver one will be hosted at Simon Fraser University (8888 University Dr, Burnaby, BC) and in Ottawa, Ontario at The Terry Fox Centre (1805 De Gaspé Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario).
