Springtide Resources, a registered charity that creates and implements programs focusing on ending violence against women and their children, is developing a new program for Deaf and Hard of Hearing folks who are queer and identify as people of colour. This program will provide opportunities to learn healthy strategies of building resilience and working together for change in their own lives. It will focus on the intersectionalities of race, sexual identity (LGBTQ) and Deaf and Hard of Hearing identities.
In order to best meet the needs of this group, they have a few survey questions about current services, organizations and interests in providing services to this specific group.
If you work in one of these fields and are interested in providing Springtide Resources with more information about the gaps in services or needs of these particular groups, please complete the survey that best fits your organization or area of expertise or identity (links below). The survey will take 10 minutes of your time.
This survey is for organizations who provide services to Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities:
This survey is for organizations who provide services to Black and racialized communities:
This survey is for organizations who provide services to LGBTQ identified communities:
The deadline for all 3 surveys has been extended to August 31, 2016.
Springtide Resources is also looking for organizations who are interested in partnering with them to do this program so feel free to provide any information you may have about potential partnerships directly to Nadine Sookermany or to Zahra Brown.
