This workshop will present one activist's recent experiences (and victories) with filing complaints through social justice tribunals and other quasi-judicial tribunals, with a focus on the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. Topics to be covered include: building a strong case, working effectively with lawyers, media considerations, and self-care throughout the process.
Location: Sidney Smith Hall, 100 St. George St., Room 2111 (its a classroom on the second floor)
Trainer: Troy Armstrong is a queer pangender person of colour and a long-time activist. Much of their work has been in support of queer communities, including founding the Pride Centre for LGBT persons at the University of Ottawa in 1996. Their recent work focused on seeking changes to laws aimed at improving access to gender-affirming health care and recognizing beyond-binary gender identities on government-issued identification documents.
