Affirm Potluck Lunch
Sunday, June 11th following the gathering
Come for our gathering, stay afterwards to share brunch together, find support among the 2SLGBTQ+ and ally community, and engage with our guest speaker, Shalini Sinha, chair of the Pride Centre of Edmonton board, and Gender Studies instructor at MacEwan University. It’s potluck so if you can, bring a plate of muffins, finger food, cheese, fruit, vegetables, desserts, etc. – enough for 4-5 people.

Whether you’ve been connected to SSUC for a few weeks or a few years, in-person or online, do you feel that SSUC is a place that you’re “not just welcome, but belong?” It can be an important and meaningful experience to mark these moments and connections in our lives. If you would you like to celebrate your belonging within this community and let us honour you as an important part of who we are together, consider being present online or in person for a short ritual of belonging in the gathering on Sunday June 25. RSVP here, and get more information and ask questions in an online info session on Thursday June 15 at 7pm via zoom.
