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 for 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.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Wisdom2Action acknowledges the land on which it was originally established as the traditional and unceded territory of the M’ikmaq, known as Mi’kmak’i (Nova Scotia). Our team is spread across Turtle Island (Canada) on the treaty lands of many First Nations. We recognize the people and the land in this way as part of our commitment to anti-oppression and decolonization. We are all treaty people.
