Dare to Stand Out is a series of national conferences, brought to you by Jer’s Vision, that work with youth to address issues surrounding homophobia and transphobia in their schools and communities. The best part is that participants will walk away with tools and resources to take back to their schools and communities.

Burnaby’s Board of Education (School District 41), in collaboration with Jer’s Vision, is organizing a conference for youth and educators surrounding the issues of homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, bullying, intersectional violence, and discrimination in schools.
