Safer Access for Everyone in the Rainbow

Project Overview

Wisdom2Action (W2A) in partnership with Access Open Minds, the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD), the Enchante Network (TEN), Gris MTL, Kickstand, Kind Space, and YWCA Halifax, will implement a three-year project entitled SAFER: Safer Access to Everyone in the Rainbow. SAFER has been made possible due to the generous support provided by the Women’s Program at Women and Gender Equality (WAGE).

The objectives of the project are to build capacity by:

Create a Partner Advisory Council (PAC) and Youth Advisory Council (YAC) to guide the project and participate in its implementation.

Train 2SLGBTQ+ organizations and youth-serving organizations on ways to engage 2SLGBTQ+ youth, and prevent and address the gender-based violence they experience.

Conduct regional and national public education campaigns to address and prevent gender-based violence against 2SLGBTQ+ youth including public harassment.

Wisdom2Action is a national social enterprise and consulting firm specializing in community engagement, creative facilitation, research and evaluation, knowledge mobilization, and EDI (equity, diversity, and inclusion). We are based in K’jipuktuk (Halifax) in Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia), the traditional and unceded territory of the M’ikmaq people. Settlers and the M’ikmaq have lived in this territory under the provisions of the Peace and Friendship Treaties since 1760 and 1772.
