From El Salvador to Saskatchewan: Solidarity Tour
TALKIN’ ABOUT SCHOOL & SOCIETY: GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP & SOLIDARITY EDITION
For one week this September, SCIC is thrilled to be hosting our Educators for Solidarity Initiative partners from El Salvador including César Antonio Hernandez Gamez and Brenda René Hubbard. César and Brenda are sexual and reproductive health rights educators representing Commitee Against AIDS/Asociación Comité Contra El Sida Cabañas Asoc Cocosi, based in El Zapote, El Salvador.
Highlights of their visit include: facilitating sessions at SCIC’s Educating Global Citizens: Stories and Strategies conference, speaking at the Talking ‘Bout Schools and Society community forum, and socials in both Regina and Saskatoon to welcome and get to know our special guests.
While in Saskatchewan, César and Brenda will also be meeting with and learning from local groups and organizations particularly around shared concerns and work in LGBTQ+ rights, HIV/AIDS advocacy, and learning about Indigenous perspectives and experiences here in the Treaty 4 & Treaty 6 area. César and Brenda are traveling to Canada for this special Saskatchewan learning tour before heading off to Toronto to present to our other program partners at the annual PWRDF Conference.
