Maritime (Sydney)


Jer’s Vision is proud to present the Dare to Stand Out Maritime: Sydney Conference on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013, at Riverview Rural Highschool (57 Coxheath Road, Cape Breton). The conference will bring together youth from Cape Breton to empower them in combating homophobia and transphobia in their schools and neighbourhoods. Each workshop is interactive or action-oriented in some way. Our desire is for youth to be able to have skills, knowledge, and tools to take back to their communities.
