From Borders To Belonging, formerly “Rainbow Coalition 4 refuge”, invites you to a webinar titled:
Supporting LGBTQI Newcomers with Ethics and Care
When LGBTQI newcomers arrive in Canadian cities they encounter an often confusing range of social attitudes, from open celebration and expectations to be out, loud and proud through intolerance, discrimination and threat. Their efforts to rebuild lives--find housing, search for jobs and meaningful work, form new relationships and belong, are complicated by the combined and intersecting impacts of racism, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia and transphobia. How can we support LGBTQI newcomers to navigate this complex terrain?
This webinar presents examples of some common struggles LGBTQI newcomers face, and explores them through the lens of ethical care. We underline the importance of upholding ethical commitments to respect self-determination, protect the right to confidentiality and privacy, and to offer competent care.
