Peel Hiv Aids Network by Chantelle Archambault - 2M ago

Empower. Educate. Engage.

Black youth deserve to be heard, empowered and understood. The Black Youth Symposium invites all African, Caribbean and Black youth aged 13-17 in Peel Region to discuss relevant topics with community leaders, meet peers and mentors, learn about the resources available in their communities, and explore the way they interact with the world.

The Symposium will feature an expert panel of exciting guest speakers exploring topics such as self-esteem, educational avenues, mental health, sexual health, and identity. Participants are encouraged to take notes, reflect, and journal throughout the day.

#BlackYouthSymposium

Peel Hiv Aids Network by Chantelle Archambault - 2M ago

On May 17, 2019, a diverse assembly of thought leaders and community builders in the Peel Region will meet over breakfast, at the Grand Victorian Banquet Hall in Mississauga, to recognize International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOT).

This year’s IDAHOT Breakfast theme, We Belong: Justice for All, will explore the role we can all play in ensuring the fundamental human rights of our 2SLGBTQ+ neighbours. Building on the tremendous success of last year’s We Belong: Voices of Youth event, we will discuss the day’s significance in our communities with the aim of generating forward-moving momentum in challenging homophobia, transphobia and other barriers to inclusion in corporate, political, social, cultural, religious, and recreational spheres.

2SLGBTQ+ communities belong in Peel Region, a community that strives to be a safe, respectful, and inclusive place for all of its residents to call home. Join us for We Belong: International Day Against Homophobia Breakfast 2019, to make your voice heard in the movement to enhance 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion in Peel Region.

Learn more and get tickets here.

In honour of World AIDS Day this December, PHAN is partnering up with OASIS Centre des femmes to bring you the Red Scarf Project! We will be selling handmade red scarves—a scaled-up version of the red HIV awareness ribbon—to raise awareness about HIV, fight stigma, and support vital health and community service programming.

While the science of HIV diagnosis, transmission, and treatment has progressed, stigma continues to be one of the greatest barriers people living with HIV face to accessing appropriate and equitable services. Stigma has a negative impact on access to healthcare, housing, and social services. Will you help us fight HIV stigma in our community?

How can I help?

PHAN and OASIS Centre des femmes are currently seeking volunteers and donations to help support our project! We are requesting:

  • Red yarn
  • Red knit/crocheted scarves measuring 6′ x 60″
  • Cash donations for supplies


If you would like to volunteer as a maker but are unable to supply your own yarn, we can provide it for you (please call or email first if you are picking up!) Locations to drop off donations or pick up supplies are:

Peel HIV/AIDS Network
7700 Hurontario St #601, Brampton

OATC Brampton Clinic
118 Queen St W #301, Brampton

OASIS Centre des femmes
