Call for volunteers: Positive Space Champions

The Positive Spaces Initiative (PSI), a project of the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI), is on a search to identify regional Champions! A Champion is a person who is actively engaged in their community, working for the inclusion and human rights of LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, queer, questioning, asexual, intersex, pansexual, genderqueer, etc.) immigrants and refugees. This volunteer position recognizes the work that you are already doing in your community, gives you an opportunity to build your skills, contacts, and experience, and connects you with other people doing similar work around the province. Champions start conversations in their communities through outreach, referrals, building networks, and events.

Call Out for Performers & Event Volunteers

We’re looking for community members to help us with organizing and/or performing in our Diverse Residents One Community event. This event will take place on Friday, June 19th 2015 and will be a kickoff to this year’s Pride celebration under the theme “Come out and play”. Through this event, we intend to raise awareness among the general population of the plight of LGBTQ Refugees and the multiple barriers they face. More importantly, we want to afford members of these communities with a venue to display their talents. This will be achieved through a day of musical and theatrical performances, art exhibitions, cultural displays and speeches by community leaders.
