SOGIC: The Kids are All Right

This presentation will focus on the hurdles being developed across Canada and the US to thwart attempts by queer students to organize safe communities for themselves and others in their schools. While we saw the Alberta government scale back protections of queer and trans students under 2019's Bill 8, this topic has come back into the mainstream after seeing the introduction of "Don't Say Gay" bills in states across the U.S. In Saskatchewan, advocates say there is a lack of comprehensive legal protections for Two-Spirit, queer and trans students in schools. Being informed on these topics will allow attendees to discuss the intricacies of any proposed policies from the Saskatchewan government and get a better sense of the questions that potential clients might have on their rights in education systems in the province.
