‘Though many we are one’ is an initiative by LGBTQ Catholic students in Ottawa who want to address homophobic and transphobic bullying in their community.
The initiative invites LGBTQ & straight allied students, recent graduates, families and staff of Catholic schools in the area to participate in a day of information sharing and discussion. Ideas will be compiled and shared with the board in hopes to guide future initiatives and directions.
Please help by sharing this event with friends and family who may be interested. Free snacks and lunch will be provided.
Because of the nature of this event we ask that participants RSVP at: Info@JersVision.org
This project is powered by JersVision.org & the Day of Pink (April 9).
