Resisting Anti-Trans Hate in Canada: The Role of Communities, Civil Society and Governments
Join Wisdom2Action for our latest panel event, “Resisting Anti-Trans Hate in Canada: The Role of Communities, Civil Society and Governments”, made possible through the generous support of CUPE National. Moderated by Wisdom2Action’s Executive Director Fae Johnstone, this panel brings together leaders in Canadian trans activism and rights: Florence Ashely, Niko Stratis, Jade Byard Peek and Kai Cheng Thom.
Anti-trans hate is on the rise in Canada. Leveraging strategies and tactics imported from the UK and US, anti-trans groups in Canada are mobilizing on an unprecedented scale. With increasing collaboration between anti-trans groups and white supremacist, racist, and far-right movements, our response must be equally coordinated and cross-sectoral. Governments, civil society organizations and activists all have a role to play in addressing anti-trans hate and violence in Canada.
This event will take place in English, and will be recorded and live-streamed on the Wisdom2Action’s Facebook Page. Automatic closed captioning will be available.
