LGBTIQ+ Roundtable on religious freedoms & social inclusion

Make Change Happen SA is organising a LGBTIQ+ community roundtable to share information and encourage submissions to two important consultations currently underway.

Religious Freedoms Inquiry

We will be discussing the federal Religious Freedoms Inquiry, what this means for LGBTIQ+ South Australians, and how you can make a submissionbefore 14 February 2018.

The Way Forward review

We will also be discussing The Way Forward: LGBTIQ Report. The South Australian Government is currently seeking feedback on the outcomes of the South Australian Strategy for the inclusion of LGBTIQ people between 2014 and 2016 and to identify future priorities for this work by 16 February 2018.

RSVP to the roundtable here.

Working Together for LGBTIQ Rights - with Ro Allen
to Sep 29

Working Together for LGBTIQ Rights - with Ro Allen

How can LGBTIQ advocates and organisations improve how we work together on local, state and Australia-wide issues? How do we share resources? How can we better organise and connect to have a collective impact?

LGBTIQ community organisations and advocates are invited to discuss how we can better work together to achieve change for our community.

We are very excited to announce that Victoria’s Gender & Sexuality Commissioner Ro Allen will be a guest speaker at the event. Ro is a longstanding advocate for LGBTIQ people, established a rural support group for LGBTI+ youth, has received a Centenary Medal and was the inaugural winner of the Australian LGBTI Awards Hero of the Year in 2017.

Ro will be joined by speakers from the Equality Campaign about how to get involved in the Yes campaign for marriage equality and from Shine SA about mental health supports for the LGBTIQ community during the postal survey.

This event will be run in partnership with volunteers from the PwC GLEE Network, Collective Impact and Three for All Foundation, who are conducting broader research on this issue around Australia.

Don’t forget to complete the National LGBTIQ Community Impact Survey before the event.

Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP here by 25 September 2017.
