The event will take place through Zoom; the link will be sent 48 hours prior to the event. The Zoom waiting room will be open by 8:45am; participants are asked to join a few minutes early so that we can start promptly at 9:00am.
We explore ways to deepen our understanding of justice as it pertains to Truth & Reconciliation and 2SLGBTQ+ Inclusion.
Workshop 1: Mapping the Ground We Stand On - A PWRDF tool which explores Indigenous presence and Settler arrival on the map of Turtle Island/Canada. The tool has been revised to work virtually, allowing for up to 20 participants to join the session. PWRDF-trained facilitators have been working with a diocesan team, including Archdeacon Val Kerr, to create a good online learning experience.
Workshop 2: Creating 2SLGBTQ+ Positive Space - This workshop looks at Creating Positive Space from a personal, organizational, and political perspective and increases awareness of the presence of both subtle and overt forms of heterosexism, cissexism, homophobia, and transphobia. Participants will learn how to become allies, advocates, and accomplices to the 2SLGBTQ+ community of communities. This workshop will be facilitated by Deirdre Pike, Justice and Outreach Program Consultant. (There is no participant limit for this workshop.)
This program is hosted by Congregational Support and Development through Justice and Outreach and Children, Youth, and Family Ministry of the Diocese of Niagara with no cost to participants.
