You're interested in making your union and your community a safer space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirit, intersex (LGBTQ2SI) members, but where do you start?  This course will give you the first step and help grow your local union at the same time!

The 1-day Pride Activist course is designed to bring local activists together to develop skills and share experiences.  The course includes education on the union structure and current issues facing the LGBTQ community.  Members will learn about how Unifor approaches campaign planning and membership mobilization, and will be given the opportunity to develop a plan of action for a local goal or issue.  The Pride Activist course is an effective tool to use to build membership engagement and create space for solidarity and mentorship within the LGBTQ community.
