You’re Invited – A History of Pride in Winnipeg: The Struggles, The Victories, The Challenges Ahead – Featured Expert and Q&A Discussion
Pride, like the many people the movement represents, comes in endless forms, colours, shapes, sizes, and identities. The 2SLGTBQIA+ community still seeks understanding and acceptance but is more mobilized than ever before to elevate and embolden members and allies, on a mission for meaningful change.
Join RRC Polytech’s Anti-Racism Committee for the second in a four-part virtual speaker series featuring champions of equity, diversity, and inclusion in a post-secondary setting. Keynote speaker, Jonathan Niemczak is the Chair and CEO of the Canadian Pride Historical Society, Past President of Pride Winnipeg, and a gender, sexuality, and relationship (GSRD) advocate with over fifteen years of community leadership experience.
After a personal introduction by friend, ally, and committee member Vassan Aruljothi, our passionate expert will address Pride in Winnipeg today, by examining the long and often difficult path travelled so far, by advocates and activists like himself. Jonathan will share his experiences in a post-secondary setting, respond to your questions, and lead a discussion about meaningful change.
