Welcome to Vancouver: A Panel Discussion to support LGBTQ2+ Refugees

August 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$20.00

Vancouver Pride Society in partnership with the Vancouver Branch of the Canadian International Council are hosting the inaugural Vancouver Pride Society LGBTQ2+ human rights panel discussion. This event will provide the Vancouver LGBTQ2+ community with an annual forum to bring together leaders within the LGBTQ2+ community, allies and government together to discuss important human rights issues impacting the community. The inaugural event will be a panel discussion on LGBTQ2+ refugees in Canada.

The event will be a panel discussion highlighting local and national non-profit organizations (Rainbow Refugee, Rainbow Railroad) that support LGBTQ2+ refugees in both Vancouver and Canada. It will also highlight the personal stories of LGBTQ2+ refugees that have made Vancouver their home and their harrowing stories of courage, strength and survival.

The cost of the event will be $20 with proceeds being given to Rainbow Refugee.
