This project initiated by the West Island CALACS stems from the observation of several community resources in the face of the lack of accessibility and inclusiveness towards certain groups more at risk of experiencing sexual assaults such as people living with disabilities, black people, Aboriginal people, racialized and/or with precarious migration status as well as people from the LGBTQIA2S community.
The main objective of the Symposium is to exchange and create a dialogue on best intervention practices and ways to promote accessibility and inclusiveness within community organizations and institutions. This event is intended to be a space for reflection and learning where everyone will be confronted with different inclusive and accessible practices.
This Symposium is mainly for you if:
- You intervene with survivors of sexual assault
- You intervene with people living with a disability
- You intervene with black people, Aboriginals, racialized and/or with precarious migration status
- You work with people of sexual diversity and gender plurality
The following services will be available:
- French-LSQ and English-ASL interpreters available
- Simultaneous translation into French and English available
Registration: Please note that all webinars will be registered except for the question period.
