    Research Project Approved by:        Joint Faculty Research Ethics Board University of Manitoba

     

    The purpose of this study is to understand the experiences of LGBT* older adults living in congregate housing spaces by identifying barriers to feeling safe and included in those spaces, and also to identify what is currently being done that helps older LGBT* feel safe and included in those spaces.

    I am currently seeking participants to take part in a research project about the housing experiences of older LGBT* adults. By participating in the project you can provide valuable insight into what the experience of living in congregate housing spaces is like for older LGBT* adults and contribute to raising awareness among community organizations and policy makers:

    To be eligible to participate, you should be:

    • Over the age of 55
    • Self-identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Genderqueer, Gender Nonconforming, or otherwise as non-heterosexual.
    • Live in congregate housing such as a 55+ housing, or other housing units with a shared communal space
    • Speak English
    • Able to use a camera or some kind of device that can take photographs
    • Able to attend a training session, an interview, and a focus group
    • Live in Winnipeg

    If you are interested in participating in this research project or would like more information, please contact Morgan Stirling by calling (204) 204-297-2850 (confidential voicemail) or email at umstirli@myumanitoba.ca.

    A Restorative Justice Association in Manitoba: A Stakeholders’ Meeting

    9:30am – 2:00pm
    (lunch and refreshments will be provided)
    RSVP: info@spcw.mb.ca by April 7, 2015

     

    Last November, an inaugural meeting was held to begin the process of forming a restorative justice association for Manitoba. Represented at the meeting were community, faith and social justice organizations, the Winnipeg Police Service, RCMP, Manitoba Justice and many unaffiliated community members all of whom are aware of the transformative potential of restorative justice and so have a vested interest in promoting it.


    A pilot committee was formed to ensure the next steps identified at that meeting were followed up on. Two of these were to do more outreach as everyone recognized that key stakeholders were not present at that meeting and to set up a larger meeting at a later date.


    This larger meeting will allow the pilot committee to report back on it activities but the goals will be:
    Envision what this association would look like
    Determine next steps


    Please circulate this to anyone you think may be interested. The pdf poster is attached.
