Exploring the Human Rights Stories of LGBTTQ* Newcomers & Refugees | Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Be all that you can be! Join us as we explore intersecting human rights stories through the eyes of LGBTTQ* individuals and newcomer and refugee communities. Beginning with local Indigenous ways of knowing, we will move through the local context to the national and international. We will take action for inclusion and change in our schools and beyond. Participants will come away with school-based action plans, resources for support, and creative art projects representing this important issue.
Open to all high school GSAs or equivalent group members, interested students in Grades 9-12 and their teachers – sign up today!
