Non-Traditional Pregnancies &Parenting

Non-Traditional Pregnancies & Parenting

Wednesday, March 30 2022
1:00 PM — 2:30 PM
In a world where we strive to be understanding and inclusive, it is important for us to learn from the diversity of ways that families are formed and grow. When we take the time to sit with our assumptions about families (how they are started and the roles and structures that are created) we can generate more welcoming and inclusive ways to talk about families. In this workshop we will discuss how Queer and Polyamorous dynamics can shift our understandings of becoming and being parents. We will also explore how we can advocate for families as we expand our definitions of what that means.

This workshop is facilitated by SHORE Centre, a community organization that we are proud to partner with.
