From Hate to Hope: Creating Safe and Inclusive Communities
On November 29, former RDC student and human rights advocate, Chevi Rabbit, will be at Red Deer College to give a special presentation to students and the public.
Rabbit will speak about the importance of breaking down social barriers, celebrating humanity and creating safe and inclusive communities, messages he shares based on his personal experience.
As the victim of a hate crime in 2012, Rabbit used his experience to propel change, and he founded the From Hate to Hope March and Rally, an annual event that has been celebrated in Edmonton for the past five years. Rabbit’s two-spirited perspective as a part of both the LGBTQ+ and First Nations communities provides a powerful voice for his message. In 2014, he received the Hate Crime Awareness Youth Award from the Alberta Hate Crime Committee.
Attendees are invited to be inspired by Rabbit’s story and courage, and learn how to be a better advocate for the LGBTQ+ community.
