From El Salvador to Saskatchewan: Solidarity Tour

EDUCATING GLOBAL CITIZENS: STORIES AND STRATEGIES CONFERENCE

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.

COMMUNITY MEET & GREET AT THE STAND COMMUNITY ORGANIZING CENTRE is one of the  four special opportunities to for members and the public to meet with and learn from our special guests:

Come give a warm Saskatoon reception to our international guests, be together in community, and share in delicious snacks in this great community space. César and Brenda are very interested to meet and hear from our members, supporters and those in the wider global justice community in the Treaty 6 area. This will be a great casual evening to do so.

Afterwards, you may wish to head over to McNally Robinson at 3130 8th Street East for the book launch for Prairie Fairies: A History of Queer Communities and People in Western Canada, 1930-1985” from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. Facebook event
