For the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, Biphobia (IDAHOTB), Dignity Network Canada, along with our member organization BlackCAP
is organizing a virtual international panel discussion with Black leaders from a number of LGBTIQ human rights organizations from Canada, the United Kingdom, The Netherlands and the United States. We are very excited to have Debbie Owusu-Akyeeah (Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity), Phyll Opoku-Gyimah (Kaleidoscope Trust, UK), Marie Ricardo (COC Nederland) and Alphonso David (Human Rights Campaign, USA) in conversation with our Board Member, Kimahli Powell (Rainbow Railroad). This event is jointly co-sponsored by the British High Commission to Canada and the Embassy of the Netherlands to Canada.
We hope that this will be a really interesting and important conversation on intersectionality and transnational solidarity – and what it means for these leaders and their organizations during these times. Please join us and feel free to share this invite with others in your organizations and networks who might be interested in this conversation with these movement leaders.
Please note, this session is in English. We will be announcing another IDAHOTB event in French soon.
