Digital Citizen Contribution Program Grant
This project will capture 2SLGBTQ+ professional experiences with online hate. Our objective is to capture how nonprofits and charities that service 2SLGBTQ+ communities become targets of online harassment by conducting and analyzing in-depth interviews. Using a feminist intersectional approach, we will critically examine how online hate-groups target organizations that serve 2SLGBTQ+ people and how they mitigate these issues. This project will identify current strategies organizations use to support 2SLGBTQ+ members of their organization who are victims of cyberviolence.
New Horizons Seniors Program Grant
ODLAN received funding from the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors project, Combating Digital Exclusion: Mobilizing Educational Resources to Remove Digital Divide Barriers. This funding allowed us to update our searchable resource database and raise awareness on the challenges 2SLGBTQ+ older adults experience accessing the Internet.
Thank you to the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program for the funding support provided to ODLAN. It will make a significant difference in improving the lives of 2SLGBTQ+ older adults in our communities. – make sure there is a link to the resource portal and the resource packet under the project description.
