The altView Foundation and the Status of Women Alberta presents the Breaking Down Walls Conference: LBTQ+ Women, Non-Binary. and Two-Spirit Empowerment Project.
These micro-conferences focus on the sharing of knowledge, empowerment, and the building of community for LBTQ+ women, non-binary, and Two-Spirited peoples from all walks of life. Each micro-conference consists of speakers from the community who will share their knowledge and experiences, followed by facilitated circle talks for everyone to discuss and share their stories. We invite all people from these identities to come together to create a safe environment to learn from one another.
