Join West Coast LEAF for an overview of the findings of their BC Gender Equality Report Card 2019/2020, which assesses the BC government’s recent progress on the human rights of women and transgender, Two-Spirit, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people. The Report Card is designed as a tool for community advocates and activists, as well as for decision-makers in government and public institutions. It explores BC’s performance in six issue areas: access to justice; economic security; freedom from gender-based violence; health care; justice for people who are criminalized; and the rights of parents, children, and youth. Insights from community dialogues held in partnership with PACE Society, Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA), and the Coalition Against Trans Antagonism (CATA) ground the Report Card in firsthand community knowledge.
This 1-hour webinar will be presented by three members of the West Coast LEAF staff team who worked on the Report Card: Elba Bendo (Director of Law Reform), Sharnelle Jenkins-Thompson (Manager of Community Outreach), and Alana Prochuk (Manager of Public Legal Education).
Participants in this webinar may claim up to 1 hour of CPD credit with LSBC, including 1 hour of practice management credit.
