Delegation for Rainbow Week of Action’s Ottawa Rally

The Society of Queer Momentum is partnering with Fierté Canada Pride, the Enchanté Network, and local advocates and organizations from across Canada to launch a National Rainbow Week of Action from May 11-17, 2024. The week brings 2SLGBTQIA+ advocates and allies together to speak up for a more free, equal and socially just future — for 2SLGBTQIA+ people and everyone in Canada.

PSAC-NCR Pride Committee and Ottawa Area Council are organizing to show our support at the rally on May 17 at Confederation Park! Members are encouraged to bring friends, family or community members who wish to participate. Members of the 2SLBGTQIA+ community and allies are welcome.
