The mission of Advocacy Canada is to unite and amplify queer voices and their allies in the community to effect positive change on important issues that make a lasting difference. We acknowledge that we are located on the unceded traditional lands of the Okanagan Syilx People and we endeavor to do our work through the lens of decolonization.

The 2SLGBTQ+ community faces unique challenges when it comes to aging, and advocacy work can help ensure that seniors in this community receive the support they need. This includes working to create more inclusive housing options, such as affordable housing communities specifically for 2SLGBTQ+ seniors.

Healthcare can also be a significant challenge for 2SLGBTQ+ seniors, who may face discrimination or lack of understanding from healthcare providers. Advocacy work can help to educate healthcare providers and ensure that seniors in this community receive respectful and appropriate care.

Connection to the community is also crucial for the well-being of 2SLGBTQ+ seniors. Advocacy work can focus on creating social opportunities and safe spaces where seniors can connect with others who share their experiences and identities.

Education and Activism

Education is a critical component of advocacy work, as it helps to raise awareness and understanding about the experiences of 2SLGBTQ+ individuals. This includes educating the wider community, as well as advocating for more inclusive education policies and curricula.

Activism is also important, as it helps to create change and raise awareness about issues facing the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Advocacy work can focus on organizing rallies, marches, and other events that bring attention to issues such as discrimination, violence, and inequality.

In addition to raising awareness, advocacy work can also focus on creating opportunities for 2SLGBTQ+ individuals to take action and advocate for themselves. This includes providing resources and support for individuals to engage in activism, such as organizing letter-writing campaigns or contacting elected officials.

Public Policy

Public policy is a critical area of focus for advocacy work, as it has a significant impact on the lives of 2SLGBTQ+ individuals. Advocacy work can focus on advocating for policies that promote equality, such as anti-discrimination laws and policies that protect the rights of 2SLGBTQ+ individuals.

Advocacy work can also focus on challenging policies that perpetuate inequality and discrimination, such as laws that limit access to healthcare or employment opportunities for 2SLGBTQ+ individuals.

In addition to advocating for specific policies, advocacy work can also focus on increasing the representation of 2SLGBTQ+ individuals in government and other decision-making bodies. This includes working to elect 2SLGBTQ+ individuals to political office and advocating for policies that promote diversity and inclusion at all levels of government.
