The Rainbow Pride Mosaic (RPM) on campus has been organizing Ally Training for individuals/groups interested in taking the one day training conducted by representatives of the Rainbow Resource Centre.
-an ally is a person who has taken training around homophobia and heterosexism. They support and welcome LGBTT* individuals and work towards creating more inclusive and safe places for LGBTT* people, by being aware of the effects that homophobia and heterosexism can have on people. They also create change by challenging and providing education around homophobia, heterosexism, stereotypes, and myths about LGBTT* people-
The current training days are August 23rd and September 20th (both tuesdays) and will be catered by Degrees. The Womyn’s Centre will be participating and will cover the registration costs for any members interested in attending the one day training.
If you are interested please send me an email by Friday August 12th, 2011 and I will send along more information as well.
Also keep an eye out for more Centre updates as we get ready for another school year full of exciting and new events
