This event will offer the rare opportunity for individuals in Canada to understand the unique experiences of some of the most systemically marginalized people in our society, whose experiences and voices are often silenced.

The event will bring local representatives of Local Safety & Inclusion Solidarity Networks from across the country to Saint John, providing them the opportunity to observe and engage in conversations about diverse experiences and silenced voices. The aim of these local networks is to bring together community members and front-line workers who are from, and/or provide services to, Indigenous, Black, and other racialized groups, refugees, and/or people with intellectual, mental health and cognitive disabilities. The focus is on women and gender diverse peoples.

At this event you will hear from diverse speakers from each of these communities, learn about the community actions each local network has been working on and enjoy poetry and live music! Lunch will be provided!

We hope to see you at both events!
