On Thursday April 17th, 2014, Jer’s Vision hosted the reigonal DTSO conference: Generation Pride with the help of Robert Bateman High School.
In the words of a student participant :
“The event was a huge success, gathering over three hundred students from all around Halton and large group of talented guests to share their stories and to teach. As the largest conference ever in Halton, we achieved an event that was a safe and inclusive space for all in order to spread knowledge and accepance as well as to celebrate all people. Special thanks to Jer’s Vision for sponsoring the event, it wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of many individuals. Thank you as well to T. A. Blakelocke for hosting the conference last year, and good luck to all those hosting in the years to come!“
One attendee commented:
“Inclusion is not bringing people into what already exists; it is making a new, better space for everyone.”
