Moose Jaw Pride is proud to be a founding member of the Saskatchewan Pride Network, a Community Initiatives Fund project that seeks to support and empower LGBT+ people living in smaller communities across Saskatchewan.
Whether it is helping to organize community events, providing diversity training to organizations or connecting you with information and resources–we’re here to help!
The overall objectives of the Saskatchewan Pride Network project are:
1) To offer resources and support to struggling LGBT+ individuals and their families living in smaller communities across Saskatchewan.
2) To offer opportunities for learning and professional development to various community service agencies, businesses and individuals.
3) To support LGBT+ community development through the provision of fun, safe and inclusive community events which facilitate the formation of informal support networks and a sense of belonging.
4) To multiply the number of people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to organize community events, offer diversity training and provide support to LGBT+ individuals.
The ultimate goal of the Saskatchewan Pride Network is to create safer, more welcoming and more inclusive communities through the provision of fabulously inclusive community events and educational opportunities.
Gender and sexual diversity can be confusing. Organizations and businesses that want to be more inclusive often don’t know where to start. How can we help LGBT people feel welcome? What language should we use? How can we avoid discrimination? What else do we need to know?
Whether you are in Prince Albert or Porcupine Plain, the Saskatchewan Pride Network offers an interactive workshop for various organizations that are wanting to help jump-start their goals of becoming more inclusive. This fun and engaging workshop is geared towards equipping beginners with the most important information they need about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) community.
The Saskatchewan Pride Network is currently working with community leaders and volunteers to provide community events in 7 target communities including: Swift Current, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Estevan, Yorkton, Prince Albert & Humboldt.
