Overview of COVID-19 BC Gender Equality Report Card
March 1, 2021 from 12:30 – 1:30pm (PT)
Join West Coast LEAF for an overview of the findings of their COVID-19 BC Gender Equality Report Card, which assesses how the BC government’s pandemic response has impacted the human rights of women and/or 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 the gendered implications of BC’s pandemic measures 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. The webinar will be presented by two members of the West Coast LEAF staff team who worked on the Report Card: 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.
