Trans and Nonbinary Youth
Join us for an evening session discussing how to build practical paths of action for creating 2SLGTBQI-inclusive school environments for trans and nonbinary youth. We will be joined by our keynote speaker, Dr. Tracey Peter, a principal investigator of the pivotal report ‘Still in Every Class in Every School‘, a national study investigating student experiences of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, harassment, mental health, and sense of safety within Canadian secondary schools. Guided by Dr. Peter’s presentation, participants will have the opportunity to discuss how to build communities of practice, inspire change, and build whole school community supports within moderated breakout sessions.

Cyberbullying and 2SLGBTQI Youth (90-minutes)
Designed to build on current anti-bullying efforts within schools, this live webinar equips educators with practical tools to prevent and address cyberbullying targeted towards 2SLGBTQI students. Participants will gain a better understanding of the context and impacts that bullying has on 2SLGBTQI youth both online and in the classroom.
Faith and 2SLGBTQI Youth (90-minutes)
This webinar will help educators bridge the gap between faith and identity as it relates to 2SLGBTQI youth. Participants will leave with new strategies for facilitating conversation on faith and 2SLGBTQI identities and ways to respond to faith-based forms of 2SLGBTQI hate in their own school communities.
