Digital Safety Strategies: Mitigating and Preventing Queerphobic Online Hate

We are excited to announce that ODLAN has received funding from the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund for the project “Digital Safety Strategies: Mitigating and Preventing Queerphobic Online Hate.” For this project, we will be building on our previous research on anti-2SLGBTQIA+ online hate to develop six publicly available modules that will support 2SLGBTQIA+ non-profit leaders in understanding anti-2SLGBTQIA+ online hate from an intersectional perspective. The modules will also support service providers with developing and implementing a digital safety plan. 

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.
