About Us

We offer a directory of existing digital literacy and access services along with our own resources on how the digital divide is impacting 2SLGBTQIA+ communities.

We consult with a variety of organizations to build the infrastructure and capacity to
create 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusive online resources and programming. By promoting digital security, equity, and access our mission is to create more inclusive virtual spaces that are accessible to everyone.

Project Announcements

Digital Resilience: Addressing the Rise of Transphobic Online Hate through Community-Based Research

We are proud to announce our latest project, Digital Resilience: Addressing the Rise of Transphobic Online Hate through Community-Based Research’.

We will be gathering data on the experiences of Two Spirit, trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming (2STNGN) professionals with online hate, investigating strategies to address it, and assessing the feasibility of creating a tracking and reporting tool.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

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.
