Webinar on Sponsorship of LGBTQ2 Refugees

Webinar on Sponsorship of LGBTQ2 Refugees

LGBTQ2 refugees are amongst the most vulnerable refugees in the world.  

In 73 countries, LGBTQ2 persons are criminalized due to their sexual orientation and gender identity.

And in more than half the world, the LGBTQ2 population is not protected from persecution. 

Join the Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Rainbow Refugee for a webinar on sponsorship of refugees who flee persecution based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

You willl learn ways in which you can get involved in sponsoring these refugees through the Blended Visa Office-Referred (BVOR) program and the LGBTI Refugee Sponsorship Pilot Project.   

When: Wednesday, August 12, 2020 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm (Saskatchean time)
