Trans Inclusion Information Sessions
HSWC is embarking on a project to make our spaces safer and more welcoming to trans, gender diverse, and Two-Spirit people who have experienced gender-based violence.  As a starting point, we are hosting two information sessions: March 10 from 6:00pm-8:00pm or March 11 from 10:30am to 12:30pm at our Drop-In Centre in Squamish (38021 Third Avenue) to share more about HSWC existing programs and services, the Trans Inclusion Project and Trans Inclusion Project Committee.   We are hoping to engage community members of marginalized genders that may be interested in supporting this process.

For more information about the Trans Inclusion Project or information sessions, connect with Shana Murray, Community Program Director (cpm@hswc.ca). Kids are welcome.  Call HSWC (604-892-5748) if transportation support is required.
