Project Announcement

Digital Safety Strategies: Mitigating and Preventing Queerphobic Online Hate

We’re pleased to announce that our six-part training module, “Understanding and Addressing Online Hate Targeting 2SLGBTQIA+ Organizations,” is now available! Organizations and individuals who participate in our training will learn about the rise of anti-2SLGBTQIA+ hate in Canada and strategies for staying safe online. 

This free on-demand training series will help you understand anti-2SLGBTQIA+ online hate. You’ll learn to identify different types of online hate and safer ways to deal with the problem. While the training series is designed for nonprofit staff in Canada, people in other roles and countries may benefit from the information. Upon finishing the modules, participants can request a certificate of completion. Upon completion, we invite you to share your feedback with us.

This training was produced by ODLAN in collaboration with NTEN.

Thanks to the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund, Canadian Red Cross , Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Canada for their support in making this project a reality.
