Dear all,

Did you know that in 73 countries, LGBTQ2 persons are criminalized due to their sexual orientation and gender identity? Or that in more than half the world, the LGBTQ2 population is not protected from persecution? Are you also aware that LGBTQ2 refugees are amongst the most vulnerable refugees in the world?

Join RSTP, UNHCR and Rainbow Refugee for a webinar on sponsorship of refugees who flee persecution based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We will discuss the ways in which you can get involved in sponsoring these refugees through the BVOR program and the LGBTI Refugee Sponsorship Pilot Project.


Wednesday, August 12, 2020 2:00 pm -3:30 pm EST

Please note: BVOR’s list of UN- referred refugees needing sponsorship is paused during COVID-19. RSTP also offers workshops appropriate for those wishing to sponsor relatives, friends or named cases through the PSR program. For more information, please email:info at rstp.ca
