June 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Our Turn and the GSRC have teamed up to hold a separate consultation for the queer community here at Carleton University. This consultation will be to specifically address the needs of the LGBTQ population in regards to the sexual violence framework. CUSA and the GSA Sexual Violence Framework, also known as Our Turn, is an action plan to prevent sexual violence on campus, support survivors, and advocate for better sexual violence policies on campus and beyond. The completed framework will be released in August.

** This consultation will be closed and not recorded to ensure that folks’ privacy will be met, and to ensure that folks will have a supportive environment to express any feedback to the SV framework. This consultation will be held by two individuals on the Sexual Violence Framework Taskforce, a Queer women of colour and a Trans male to ensure that there will be a variety of intersections respected within the consultation.

** Sam, the current Admin Co-ordinator, will be on site and is trained in SV peer support and will be on staff to assist anyone’s needs.
