Across our diverse communities, we all deserve the freedom to be ourselves, to be treated with dignity and safe in our communities. For trans and gender diverse people in Canada, discrimination and inequality are still an everyday reality. That’s why the Society of Queer Momentum and the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity have launched a new petition, supported by MP Randall Garrison, calling on the Government of Canada to act for Trans Equality Now. You can sign the petition here.
The petition urges the federal government to implement the 29 policy solutions contained in MP Randall Garrison’s White Paper on the Status of Trans and Gender Diverse People.
Trans people are our neighbors, our friends, and our family. They contribute to our communities, our culture and our economy. As we witness rising hate targeting trans and queer people, the progress we have made is at risk. When we deny one group the freedom to be themselves, dignity and safety, it impacts all of us.
Together, we can speak up for trans and gender diverse equality. We can speak up for a Canada where everyone is free to be themselves, treated with dignity and safe in their communities.
